Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid died overnight, aged 65.
I admit to being no huge fan of her work, but I did admire, and respect, the way she walked a no doubt lonely life as the world's only female 'starchitect'.
One of the things that is so clever about the BBC's Desert Island Discs is how it can use music to really 'get inside' the people we only know from their public persona.
A couple of weeks ago Zaha Hadid was the show's guest, and she spoke very movingly about her life, musical influences, and the power of architecture.
I'll let others write about her architectural legacy, but for me, the music tells its own tale, as art often does.
