The glitterati were out in their droves for Zaha Hadid's lecture at the Architecture Association last week. Eva Jiricna, Alex Lifschutz, Jan Kaplicky, Rowan Moore and many others came out to show their support for the first lady of British architecture. However, the AA's usual zeal in cramming in as many people as possible to its talks backfired as the heat and discomfort took its toll on those watching. Reports emerged after the event of one student collapsing because of the poor conditions. Or, of course, they could have been swooning.

Either way Zaha can always be relied upon to whip up some drama?
