Zaha Hadid, Iraq-born architect and darling of the deconstructivist movement (you know who you are) is not exactly best known as a car designer. In fact, most gearheads would be hard pressed to pick her out of a crowded newsroom at the BBC. Regardless, she's debuting her Z-car concept at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City this weekend. While some would say architects have as much business meddling in car design as Camillo Pardo does messing with buildings, artistes will do as they do. Plus, she's designed the central building for BMW's new plant in Leipzig, Germany, which gives her requisite cred points.
