Zaha Hadid, Burglar's City, Men's Fashion

Hosted by

Architects and critics discuss the legacy of architect Zaha Hadid who died of a heart attack last week in a Miami hospital, at age 65. The Iraqi-born, London-based Hadid designed numerous buildings including the London Olympic Aquatic Centre and the MAXXI National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome. She won the Pritzker Prize and the RIBA Gold Medal for architecture, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2012. Also on the show, what can burglars teach us about architecture? Quite a lot, according to Geoff Manaugh. In his new book, A Burglar's Guide to the City, he argues that burglars have a unique and knowledgeable understanding of buildings and the urban fabric. And we remember a time when men wore corsets, padded stockings and used swords as fashion accessories, in a conversation about LACMA's new exhibition, Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015.
