Zaha Hadid Architects named ‘International Practice of the Year’ the AJ120 2015

Assessed on key AJ120 survey data such as the year-on-year percentage growth in architectural fees and the firm’s design quality, as judged by an expert panel, the contest for International Practice of the Year went right down to the wire. In the running were three practices: Foster + Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects and Hopkins Architects.

Hadid won it by a nose thanks to the success of projects such as the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, South Korea, which has welcomed 8.5 million visitors since it opened in March 2014, as well as winning landmark projects such as the Japan National Stadium.

Factor in a global order book of more than £60 million and Zaha Hadid Architects closed the show.
