A new book from Images Publishing Group looks into the creative genius of Zaha Hadid, whose work captured the collective imagination, and influenced designers to challenge the perceived limits of aesthetics and engineering.

Hadid's untimely death in 2016 shocked the world, inspiring a commitment to uphold her passion to create unique built spaces. Today her firm maintains its commitment to her ideals of fluidity.

This all-new book is the first to be published on the famed architect since her death. It showcases the transformative, cultural, corporate, and residential spaces that entered into complete synchronicity with their surrounding environment.

Born in Iraq, Hadid studied architecture in London and became one of the most renowned and revered architects in the world. After founding Zaha Hadid Architects in 1979, Hadid received the highest accolades for her sophisticated, signature projects, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Stirling Prize, and the 2016 Royal Gold Medal by the Royal Institute of British Architects.

With almost 1000 projects across Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, Hadid's outstanding contribution remains at the cutting-edge. She was recently included on Forbes' list of the "World's Most Powerful Women".

Projects featured include national museums, (plus the only permanent public museum exhibition anywhere in the world), world-renowned auditoriums, multi-residential towers and commercial developments, including the MAXXI: Italian National Museum of XX! Century Arts in Rome, the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympic Games, and the Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku - urban manifestos of Zaha Hadid's quest for complex, fluid spaces.
