Zaha Hadid is probably the most famous woman architect in the world and the first to win the Pritzker Prize. She has achieved international recognition for her visionary images and design.

The book offers the definitive overview of the creative trajectory of this architect and her practice.

Zaha Hadid: The Complete Works has been judged as one of the most complex architectural monographs ever produced. The publication comprises four volumes of differing sizes that offer multiple perspectives on more than a hundred projects and over twenty years at the vanguard of architecture.

• 'Major and Recent Projects' is a large-scale presentation of Hadid’s recently built work and famed paintings

•'Projects Documentation' is the only book to offer detailed descriptions and illustrations of Hadid's complete buildings and projects.

• 'Models and Sketches' is a selection of the architect’s groundbreaking exploration in perspective

• 'Essays and References' is forwarded by Greg Lynn and features essays by international authors such as Peter Cook, Gordana Fontana-Giusti, Andreas Ruby and Patrik Schumacher, and an exhaustive reference section, which includes a bibliography and project data.
