Zaha says preventing migrant deaths in Qatar "not my duty as an architect"

Zaha says preventing migrant deaths in Qatar "not my duty as an architect"

News: architects have "nothing to do with the workers" who have died on construction sites in Qatar, according to Zaha Hadid, whose Al Wakrah stadium for the FIFA World Cup 2022 is under construction in the gulf state.

Over 500 Indian migrants and 382 Nepalese nationals have died in the
country since it won the right to host the football tournament,
according to an investigation into conditions in the Qatari construction
industry by British newspaper The Guardian, prompting an outcry from human rights groups across the world.

"It's not my duty as an architect to look at it," Hadid said yesterday at the reopening for her Olympic aquatics centre in London. "I
cannot do anything about it because I have no power to do anything
about it. I think it's a problem anywhere in the world. But, as I said, I
think there are discrepancies all over the world."

Hadid's Al Wakrah stadium is one of five new venues under construction for the tournament but the architect says it is the responsibility of the Qatari government not architects to address issues relating to worker deaths.

"I have nothing to do with the workers," she said. "I think that's an
issue the government - if there's a problem - should pick up.
Hopefully, these things will be resolved."
