The qualities in Zaha Hadid's architecture that we most admire -- the dramatic spaces. the interweaving of layers, and the unusual play of light -- are expertly captured in these photographs by Helene Binet, best known for her images of Peter Zumthor's work. This volume includes photographs of two buildings, the Vitra Fire Station and LF One, and two exhibition installations; the result deepens our understanding of Hadid's designs.
