Zaha Hadid was one of the most innovative and celebrated architects of our time. Born in Iraq, raised in London and recipient of the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize (and twice winner of the UK’s Stirling Prize), Hadid transformed our experience of space and architecture in a career that spanned forty years. This comprehensive volume of over two hundred projects – from the earliest experimentations to product design, from speculative follies to large-scale built works, including the London Aquatics Centre, the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul and the Dominion Office Building in Moscow – is a testament to the depth, range and excitement of her vision.
'A fascinating insight into the practice of a woman who allows for her creations to transcend the realm of the blueprint' Aesthetica
