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 world of architecture with her recent work while her audacious and futuristic-looking designs having catapulted her to international fame.
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’s 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. The book is now available through Amazon.
