Global architecture practice Zaha Hadid Architects has announced in a latest statement that it has moved to an employee ownership model, a move that relieves it from the demands of external investors. The firm has established an Employee Benefit Trust, and will reinvest its profits back into the business and its 500 employees worldwide. This is in contrast to the latest development at Foster + Partners that now has a Canadian investor as a majority shareholder.
