From the publisher:
“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 tome 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.
"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.”
Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid (1950–2016) is known for pushing the boundaries of modern architecture. She is the first female architect to win both the Pritzker Prize for architecture and the prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal.
