Bouquets of flowers, cards, and a ring of candles mourning the death of architect Zaha Hadid appeared today along the construction fencing of One Thousand Museum, her Miami skyscraper. At the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce Better Beach Awards Luncheon today, a moment of silence was taken in her memory. Facebook is awash with Zaha. Both reporter Andres Viglucci and critic Alastair Gordon gave her touching and lengthy tributes in the Miami Herald. The global architecture and design community may be devastated by the loss of Zaha, but Miami is taking it personally. After all, design is part of the city's popular culture, and Miami had become her second home. The great architect who died at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach was a talented genius, a pioneering female in a profession dominated by men, one of the most famous and revered of the 'starchitects,' and a Miamian.
