BRIT Awards Statue by Zaha Hadid

 

BRIT Awards 2017 will present winning artists with the statue designed by Zaha Hadid. BRITs Chairman Jason Iley initially reached out to Hadid in early 2016. Iley wanted to create something modern and culturally relevant for The BRITs. He met Hadid ay her party celebrating the winning of the 2016 Royal Gold Medal.

Recalling this meeting and a subsequent one Iley said, “The party was for her family, friends and many renowend architects. This was a really big night for her and she was still prepared to talk about The BRIT Award and she was really exited about it. A couple of weeks later, as a guest of Sony at The BRIT Awards, she said ‘I know exactly how I want to do it! I have a vision for it!’ Which was amazing as she was one of the most brilliant, forward thinking architects in the world.”

Explaining his reasons for approaching Hadid, Iley continued, “Their work is innovative, original and recognises diversity in culture. It has much in common with music. Hadid was the perfect choice for progressing the Award into the future.”
