CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Zaha Hadid is the most famous woman architect in the world, and the first to
win the Pritzker Prize. Having achieved international recognition through her
striking images and design, the Iraqi-born, London-based architect is now of
the profession's most sought-after figures. Her buildings are now appearing
across the globe, from Europe to the United States, in China and Japan. Zaha
Hadid's moment has arrived. Zaha Hadid: Complete Works is one of the most
exciting and complex architectural monographs ever published. This brilliantly
conceived and designed publication comprises four volumes of differing sizes
that offer multiple perspectives on more than a hundred projects and over
twenty years at the vanguard of architecture. Major and Recent Projects is a
large-scale presentation of Hadid's recently built work and famed paintings,
while the thematically organized Projects Documentation identifies the strands
of her work through detailed descriptions and illustrations. Models and
Sketches is a selection of the architect's groundbreaking explorations in
perspective, many taken from her private sketchbooks, and previously
unpublished. Essays and References features essays by international critics, an
appreciation by maverick Peter Cook and an exhaustive reference section,
including a bibliography and project data.
