Migrant workers building the first stadium for Qatar's 2022 World Cup have been earning as little as 45p [≈75¢] an hour, the Guardian can reveal [...] More than 100 workers from some of the world's poorest countries are labouring in ferocious desert heat on the 40,000-seat al-Wakrah stadium, which has been designed by the British architect Zaha Hadid [..] — The Guardian
This is just the most recent in a slew of bad PR for the British-Iraqi architect. Earlier, she was rebuked for asserting that architects have neither power over nor responsibility for the conditions of workers on their buildings. She won the 2014 Design Museum award for a building in Azerbaijan that has been criticized for both its construction practices and more generally for being a symbol of support for the country's dictatorial leader. Her designs for a new stadium in Tokyo were called too big, too expensive, and inappropriate for its urban context. And the awarding of the Iraqi Parliament project to her was also met with controversy (the emerging Islamic State is probably threatening the viability of the project anyway).
Still, ZHA don't seem to have any trouble finding clients!
