Publisher Comments:

Building the future now.  The iconic work of a singular architect

 

Zaha Hadid is a wildly controversial architect, who for many years built almost nothing, despite her designs winning prizes and critical acclaim. Some even said her work was unbuildable. Yet over the past decade she has completed numerous structures including the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati (which the New York Times called the most important new building in America since the Cold War), the Phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg, Germany,and the Central Building of the new BMW Assembly Plant in Leipzig. Today, Hadid is firmly established among the élite of world architecture, her audacious and futuristic designs having catapulted her to international fame.

Born in Baghdad and educated in London, where her practice is based, Hadid has designed radical architecture for over 30 years and is now the subject of this massive TASCHEN monograph. Covering her complete works to date, and all of her recent work from Dubai to Guangzhou, this XL tome demonstrates the progression of Hadids career—including not only buildings but also furniture and interior designs—with in-depth texts, spectacular photos, and her own drawings. Also included is a special section with translucent vellum paper allowing multiple layers of designs to be viewed at once or separately.

 

Synopsis:

In 2004, Zaha Hadid became the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize. In the past decade, she has completed a plethora of structures including the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, the Phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg, Germany and the Central Building of the new BMW Assembly Plant in Leipzig. There is no doubt that Zaha Hadid has joined the elite of world architecture with her recent work. Born in Baghdad, Iraq and educated in London, where her practice is based, Hadid has been shaking up the foundations of architecture for over 30 years and is now the subject of a massive TASCHEN monograph. Covering her complete works to date, and all of her exciting new work from Dubai to Guangzhou, this XL tome clearly demonstrates the progression of Hadid career including not only buildings but also furniture and interior designs. Also included is a special section with translucent vellum paper allowing multiple layers of designs to be viewed at once or separately.
