Last week Olympics minister Tessa Jowell sensationally asked Hadid to rethink her plans for the 20,000-seat swimming pool in east London after it emerged the proposed scheme had come in at nearly double the original £75 million estimate.
According to Jowell, who has vowed to keep the Games on time and on budget, specification changes had resulted in a massive increase in project costs.
However, in a joint statement with the DCMS, the London Development Agency (LDA) and Sport England, the Iraqi-born architect has said she will continue to work on the pool development alongside collaborators S&P Architects.
'In light of the recent media coverage about the Aquatic Centre for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games- [we] wish to make it clear that Zaha Hadid Architects remains the architects for the project,' the statement said.
It continued: 'The offices of Zaha Hadid Architects and S&P Architects are continuing to work positively and in partnership with the DCMS, LDA, Sport England and the London Organising Committee to deliver a truly iconic project for the London 2012 Games - within the budget available and to the appropriate and agreed specifications.'
Meanwhile Richard Rogers, in an effort to calm the growing media frenzy surrounding the fiasco, has also released a statement championing the current architectural team behind the scheme.
Rogers, speaking in his role as architectural adviser to the Mayor of London, said: 'I am delighted- Zaha Hadid is continuing to develop its exciting ideas for the Olympic Aquatic Centre following the excellent competition run by the LDA a year ago.'
He added: 'I look forward to the scheme evolving in the context of the Olympic masterplan and meeting all the objectives set by the client for a world-class building delivered on time and in budget.'
