Zaha Hadid has been named a judge of Iraq’s first design excellence award for architecture students.

Hadid is part of a 12-strong panel that also includes Paul Ivey, dean of the engineering faculty at Coventry University and Moira Lascelles, curator of special projects at the Architecture Foundation.

They will choose the best three projects out of 135 entries for the Tamayouz Award, which is Iraq’s first architectural award since 2003. 

Tamayouz Award coordinator Ahmed Salah said: “Tamayouz Award has achieved an important milestone by bringing together prestigious International organisation like Zaha Hadid Architects and Coventry University with Iraqi construction firms and universities to work together in order to improve the architectural situation in Iraq.”

Zaha Hadid Architects is also a diamond sponsor of the prize.
