Zaha Hadid's never had it so good

The designer of the Olympic aquatics centre will be able to splash out this year – Zaha Hadid’s remuneration has increased 5 per cent to a cool £775,000

Her 289 colleagues may be surprised to discover that the grand dame of British architecture took home almost half of the total profits from Zaha Hadid Architects last year.
The London Evening Standard reports that while pre-tax profits at the practice fell from £5m to £1.58m, Hadid’s basic pay rose from £185,650 to £200,000 and her dividend as sole shareholder went up from £550,000 to £575,000.
