Building the future now

The special daring of Zaha Hadid.

Hadid. Complete Works 1979–2009

US$ 150
Not available
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 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.
  • "For the architect buff, this book is a "must have"... An exquisite book to be sure: HADID, Complete Works 1979-2009."

  • "TASCHEN's titanic 'complete works' series gets a welcome addition in the form of a monumental monograph on the works of Zaha Hadid."
