Selected works of Iraqi female architect Zaha Hadid, one of the most important representatives of Modern Architecture, have been put on display at an exhibition at New York's Leila Heller Gallery.

The exhibition features a wide selection of the recently deceased architect's works, including the "Liquid Glazed Furniture Collection" of 2015.

Over the last 30 years, Hadid used architecture as a form of panoramic picture. The exhibition reveals the distinctive features of her large-scale building projects and how she employed a new spatial paradigm in all scales.

The work "Seoul Table," made of carbon fiber with a super glossy finish in 2008, shows how the architect used vertical and horizontal transitions.

Made of American walnut, the handmade "Volu Table" grabs attention with its curved components as well as with its ergonomic and functional shape.

Known for her deconstructivist architecture style, Hadid was the first female architect to win the Pritzker Architecture Award in 2004. In 2008, she made the Forbes' list of "The World's 100 Powerful Women."

She had his architecture firm with more than 350 employees in London. Although Hadid died on March 31, 2016, at the age of 65, her team still continues working on her incomplete projects.

On March 30 this year, Hadid, suffering from bronchitis, was taken to hospital, where she died of a heart attack the following day.

Hadid's exhibition at Leila Heller Gallery will remain open until Jan. 21, 2017.
