This is a complete monograph of Zaha Hadid’s early, unbuilt and built works, from her student years to the latest projects under development, and includes her furniture, stage and exhibition designs. The projects – constructed, in planning or under construction – are located around the globe.
An introduction by Aaron Betsky, 2008 Director of the Venice Architecture Biennale, examines the architect’s career, both in the context of architectural history and as a manifestation of the current and future state of architecture.
• The works are organized in chronological order over Hadid’s 30-year career, revealing her earliest inspirations and powerful resonances between projects.
• Prepared in collaboration with Hadid’s office
• A dazzling array of imagery, from large-scale paintings to sculpture-like models, from multi-perspective drawings to dynamic computer renderings, together with more conventional forms of architectural documentation, such as photographs, plans and drawings.
