Zaha Hadid

Front Cover
Having trained and lectured at London's prestigious Architectural Association and worked with Rem Koolhaas in his Office for Metropolitan Architecture, Zaha Hadid opened her own practice in 1987, and since then she has gained worldwide recognition for her bold and original vision. Long admired for her dazzling "paper architecture," in recent years Hadid has won much critical and popular acclaim with her built work, and this volume features such celebrated high-profile projects as the Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein, Germany, the Mind Zone at the Millennium Dome outside of London, and the legendary Monsoon Bar in Tokyo. With the completion in 2003 of the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Hadid achieved the distinction of being the only woman to have ever designed a major American museum. This comprehensive monograph offers a complete overview
of Hadid's work-from her designs, drawings, and paintings to her sketches,
plans, and models.

Winner, Pritzker Architecture Prize, 2004
