Hadid's forms 24 April 2013
By J. S. Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's OK. Each one of these Basic Architecture Series books from Taschen consists of an introductory essay about the architect in question, and a subsequent section of the theur most important projects, each one accompanied by photos, plans and text. The introductory essay in this book is excellent. It leaves clear what Zaha is about, elaborating on the philosophy behind her formal ideals, how technological history has shaped her views and the response from the architectural community about her work, as well as her personal opinions. But the projects section is vague, in the sense that you cannot get a grasp about a project if it is not explained appropriately (I do not expect an exhaustive description per work - this is "Basic Architecture"); the texts only focus on form, as if form were the unique purpose of architecture, which isn't so. I recognize that Zaha's work has had its repercussions considerably because of its form - but how does her innovation in form creates spatial program and how it is accomplished, technically speaking. The photo captions are vague and could have not been necessary to be written at all in some cases, as they are not relevant enough in providing complementary information to the text. The book leaves too many questions unanswered, for my expectations, in the respects of context, program, and technology about each work. Two to four more sentences per project page should have sufficed to explain on materiality, structure, and so on. So, I consider this to be a good purchase considering the price, but it could have been more appropriate in order to be a basic monograph on the subject of architecture proper, as it aims to be, I suppose.
okay, not great 11 Aug. 2015
By KittenLauncher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
as an M.Arch student, one of my friend suggested me to read more about Zaha's work.
i have about 8-9 books from Taschen, ranging from Ando to Catatrava.
and i got to say that i didnt like this one for two reasons.
first it didnt give anyof Zaha's background and her entry into the architecture world. it was just kind of like oh hi and she started by designing a firestation. how did she get that commission? what was she doign before she got it???
i am graduating soon so i am very interested to see how these masters broke into the field
then many of her works featured in this book is very mediocre and the shots are not very great.

it is an okay book on Zaha in general, but the one on Ando is way way way better!

This book contains wonderful photographs of Zaha Hadid's diverse and highly original designs as an architect. It is an excellent reference
Go Zaha, go ! 19 April 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of hers, so of course I like this book. I am sick of all the criticisms that are sent her way. Jealousy, nothing more.
