Learning from Las Vegas - Revised Edition: The Forgotten Symbolism of Architectural Form
Zaha Hadid has designed an unusual sculptural form to be built as an eye-catcher between two listed half-timbered buildings in the middle of the picturesque Swabian village of Nabern. It is intended to form a contrast with its surroundings and address provocative questions to everyday architectural experience.
Zaha Hadid's model for the planned extension to Billie Strauss's 1992 Art-hotel is made up of distorted geometrical shapes like ellipse, cross, spiral and star. They are arranged vertically to form a tower-like sculpture, framed by filigree steel scaffolding. The cross-and star-like structures are intended to serve as separate rooms in the hotel; they will be connected by a spiral staircase. The ellipsoid base of the sculpture, the blobby that has already been realized, partially sunk in a pool of water, will be used among other things for events at the hotel. A bridge set on the level of the spiral staircase links the project to the older building on the left, the first phase of the hotel.
Gallery-owner Billie Strauss and her husband, architect Manfred Strauss, have been running a wine bar in the half-timbered former village town hall since the early eighties. This was joined by the Arthotel in the old building on the left in early 1994. The half-timbered building has been retained in its entirety, and the interior arrangement of the hotel, designed and realized by Zaha Hadid with Billie and Manfred Strauss, is an expressive counter-design to the historical shell of the building. Distorted and exploded ground plans, surfaces that break through space and design that revels in color present an extravagant contrast with the idyllic half-timbered building and prove the experimental gusto and creativity of the cooperating trio. The 1992 extension project is intended to bring this exciting set of contradictions into an architectural ensemble of old, new and old buildings.
Zaha Hadid: Nabern by Paul Sigel and Bernhard Widmann
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.
Architecture of Zaha Hadid in Photographs by Helene Binet
First woman to win the Pritzer Prize, Zaha Hadid is recognized worldwide by her distinctive and innovative architecture. Born in Iraq, the London based architectural designer creates powerful buildings easily recognizable by their fluid forms.
She moved to London to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture where she met Rem Koolhaas one of her teachers with who she started working at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture and where she later became a partner.
In 1980 she opened her own studio and lowered the voices that claimed that her architecture was impossible to build.
In 2011 she was choosen to design the London Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympics.
She appears in the Forbes list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women and Time’s list of Influential Thinkers. She also won the Stirling Prize two years running: in 2010, for the MAXXI Museum in Rome, and in 2011 for redesigning a state school in Brixton, the Evelyn Grace Academy.
But it’s not only in architecture that her brilliance could be seen. Hadid developed work in all fields of design, from furniture, to lighting, footwear or jewelry. The book Zaha Hadid: Form in Motion . published by Yale, collects all of these less-known projects.

Dame Zaha Hadid [1950-2016] studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut before she started her architectural journey in 1972 at the progressive Architectural Association in London. She joined her former professors, Rem Koolhaas and Elia Zenghelis, at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, where she became a partner in 1977. By 1979 she had established her own practice in London – Zaha Hadid Architects – garnering a reputation across the world for her trail-blazing theoretical works including The Peak in Hong Kong (1983), the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin (1986) and the Cardiff Bay Opera House in Wales (1994).
Zaha Hadid’s work of the past 30 years was the subject of critically acclaimed exhibitions at New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2006, London’s Design Museum in 2007, the Palazzo della Ragione in Padua, Italy, in 2009, the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2011 and the State Hermitage Museum in 2015.
In 2004 Zaha Hadid became the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize. In 2016, she will be the first woman to be awarded the RIBA Royal Gold Medal. Zaha Hadid’s other awards include the Republic of France’s Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Japan’s Praemium Imperiale and in 2012, Zaha Hadid was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. She was made Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and Fellow of the American Institute of Architecture whilst the Royal Institute of British Architects announced Zaha Hadid as the recipient of the 2016 Royal Gold Medal.THE PRODUCTS
The Zaha Hadid Design Collection features gift items and home accessories that have been designed using state of the art techniques and crafted by artisans from across Europe, and it includes platters, trays, vessels, candles and candelabras, stools and a chess set.
Contrast is key throughout the collection, both in terms of materials and colours. Traditional bone china and ceramic are offset against modern resins and acrylics, while neon pops of lime and fuchsia provide a stark contrast to pared back pieces in off-white or black. What remains consistent throughout, is the use of Zaha Hadid’s signature aesthetic: shapes are fluid, forms are free and each piece is unmistakably Zaha Hadid.THE COLLABORATIONS
Collaborations are an important part of the design process for Zaha Hadid. She has worked with some of the most iconic fashion brands and celebrities such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karen, and Pharrell Williams for Adidas. She has also established long standing relationships with international design brands such as Alessi, Artemide, B&B, Established & Sons, Lalique and Sawaya & Moroni to articulate a new design language.
Often these designs are unveiled at several of the world's most renowned design fairs such as, The Venice Architectural Biennale, Salone del Mobile Milano, Design Miami, and most recently at the IDFFHK. Many of the collaborations have been produced in limited and numbered editions, and are important additions to both private and public collections.
The first woman to be awarded the distinguished Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004, Zaha Hadid is internationally known for projects that have literally "shifted the geometry of buildings." The Iraqi-born, London-based architect has collaborated with the Guggenheim on several projects leading up to this comprehensive retrospective, including the design for the museum's exhibition "The Great Utopia" in 1992. Each of Hadid's dynamic and innovative works builds on over 30 years of experimentation and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design. True to Hadid's interdisciplinary approach to architecture, all mediums will be covered here.Reader's Thoughts
Schitterend portofolio van architecte met wereldfaam!Ik vind deze uitgave net iets minder indrukwekkend als de nieuwe XL uitgave over Hadid bij TASCHEN (die ik even kon inkijken in de nieuwe T. Store aan de Grote Zavel te BXL), echter nog niet te leen in onze Bib.[Binnenkort ->> 2013 krijgen we in Antwerpen een nieuw havenhuis ontworpen door Hadid. http://www.apen.be/havenhuis+antwerpe. In dit boek wordt o.a. via een veelvoud aan tekeningen Hadid's vroege oorspronkelijke inspiratie van Russische Constructivisten naar voor gebracht.Dat het modernisme met zijn maatschappelijke dimensie zou bijdragen aan een betere maatschappij was ook de overtuiging van vele architecten.Ondertussen heeft Hadid's architectenbureau, gevestigd te London, met ruim 250 medewerkers vooral "rijke" prestigieuze projecten ontworpen en veel design wedstrijden gewonnen met stuk voor stuk prachtige sculpturen, fluide Hadidiaanse visies, die allicht ook o.i.v. computer ondersteund ontwerp hun "gewaagde" algoritmes in scene brengen.Hadid legt ons als visionaire kunstenares, architecte en wiskundige, met roots uit het Suprematisme en Mesopotamië, moeilijke vragen voor, en haar architecturale antwoorden zijn haar "condition humaine" die de confrontatie met de Tijd aangaan.Share your thoughts Cancel reply Featured

From Olympic Games venues to world-class art galleries, this complete monograph of Zaha Hadid traces the detailed development of the first female architect to win the Pritzker prize and the first great architect of the 21st century. Photographs, in-depth texts, and Hadid’s own drawings document her audacious, integrated universe of architecture, furniture, and interior design, including the new Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London.
Zaha Hadid was a revolutionary architect, who for many years achieved critical acclaim and won numerous prizes, while building almost nothing. Some even said her work was unbuildable. During the latter years of her life, Hadid’s daring visions became a reality, bringing a unique new architectural language to cities and structures as the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati. the Glasgow Riverside Museum. and the Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum in Michigan .
At the time of her death in 2016, Hadid was firmly established among the élite of world architecture, working on projects in China, the Middle East, the United States, and Russia. She was the first female architect to win both the Pritzker Prize for architecture and the prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal.
This massive TASCHEN monograph, now available in an updated and more accessible edition. covers Hadid’s complete works, right through to the new Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London. With abundant photographs, in-depth sketches, and Hadid’s own drawings. the volume traces the detailed evolution of Hadid’s career, comprising not only pioneering buildings but also the furniture and interior designs that were integrated into her unique, and distinctly 21st-century, universe.The author
Philip Jodidio (born 1954) studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His books include TASCHEN’s Architecture Now! series, and monographs on Tadao Ando, Norman Foster, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, and Zaha Hadid. He is internationally renowned as one of the most popular writers on the subject of architecture.
＿ Ｒｅａｄｉｎｇ ＿ : "With her most recent commission, Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center, architect Zaha Hadid becomes the first woman ever to design an American museum. This long awaited first monograph on one of the world's most important architects collects Hadid's entire oeuvre-more than 80 built and unbuilt projects over 20 years- in one significant volume. Throughout her training at London's Architectural Association, and her work with Rem Koolhaas at OMA, to the establishment of her own worldwide architectural practice, Zaha Hadid has been acclaimed for her vanguard architectonic language. Only a handful of her projects have been built-all to great critical success- and each new project astonishes the world of design with its commitment to revolutionary forms and ideas. As a result, she has an enormous following of students and practitioners, visionaries and builders. The groundbreaking monograph contains Hadid's own striking drawings and paintings, as well as hundreds of sketches, plans, and models. Readers will recognize her built work-the Vitra Fire Station near Basel and the IBA Building in Berlin- and will welcome details of her competition entry for Chicago's ITT Building, and her winning design for the Cardiff Opera House. With generous commentary by the architect and her office, this is a landmark publication."
