Hadid in no way involved in any Iraqi museums


With reference to your article (AJ 17.2.05) on myself, for the record, I have not been approached officially to build a museum in Iraq.

In addition, I would like to correct a misreading in the article. The reporter seems to be confused throughout, referring to the Islamic Museum - which has not been built - then the National Museum, which is already in existence. I have not been approached to design either building. I feel that your readers would benefit from this clarification.

Zaha Hadid, London EC1
