Zaha Hadid is one of the most innovative and celebrated architects working today. Born in Iraq, raised in London, and recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Hadid has transformed our experience of space and architecture.

This comprehensive, updated monograph of more than two hundred projects--from Hadid's earliest experimentations and product design to follies and large-scale built works, including the recently completed London 2012 Aquatics Centre, Guangzhou Opera House in China, and Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum in Michigan--is a testament to her innovative, wide-ranging, and exhilarating vision.

Prepared in collaboration with Hadid's London-based practice, the book contains a dazzling array of imagery organized in chronological order, revealing Hadid's earliest inspirations and most recent innovations. Included are the latest high-profile projects, such as the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, the Library and Learning Centre for the University of Economics in Vienna, and the Grand Théâtre de Rabat in Morocco.

An introduction by critic and museum director Aaron Betsky considers Hadid's entire career, both in the context of architectural history and as a manifestation of the current and future state of architecture.
