Asking "Would you still call me a diva if I were a man?", Zaha Hadid challenges more than 100 years of stereotypes about female architects. A century in which women were refused entry to architecture schools, were denied degrees when they had completed courses, a century in which even now, women occupy just ten per cent of the highest-ranking jobs in architecture firms. "Breaking Ground" is a pioneering, even essential, celebration of incredible architecture designed by women, both a glorious visual manifesto and a timely record of the extraordinary contribution female architects have made to the profession.
