Description

Meet Malala Yousafzai, the incredible activist for girls’ education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate​. The first book published on Zaha Hadid since her death in 2016, although book had been well into production. In this book from the highly acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. It's abundantly clear that her family supported her dreams, aspirations and imagination, nurturing her and giving her the space to breathe and create. Leaving her home in Baghdad, she studied architecture in London and made quite a splash with her unconventional building designs.

Zaha Hadid was a revolutionary architect, who for many years built almost nothing, despite winning critical acclaim. Critic and museum director Aaron Betsky’s introduction examines Hadid’s entire career, both in the context of architectural history and as a manifestation of the current and future state of architecture. I always want the students in my classroom to know about different careers, different obstacles people face, and different ways of thinking.Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!

From her early sharply angled buildings to later more fluid architecture that made floors, ceilings, walls, and furniture part of an overall design, this essential introduction presents key examples of Hadid’s pioneering practice. You learn all about the talented architect but most importantly you understand the perseverance it took to achieve the success that she did! I would've enjoyed more of her thought process rather than a simple listing out of her many (admirable) achievements. The author makes it clear that Zaha's journey to success wasn't an easy one, but many young readers will finish the book impressed by how she was inspired by nature in drafting her designs and how she remained undeterred in doing things her way and remaining true to her vision. Perennials PERENNIALS constant friends A selection of novels, memoirs and more by some of our favourite authors.

With abundant photographs, in-depth sketches, and Hadid’s own drawings, the volume traces the evolution of her career, spanning not only her most pioneering buildings but also the furniture and interior designs that were integrated into her unique, and distinctly 21st-century, universe.

At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details). I was delighted to learn about Zaha Hadid and after finishing the book, I had to immediately look up the museum in Cincinnati that she designed. Inspiring read about a female architect who changed the norms of her industry and didn't let critics hold her back.

I could see many students, as I did, looking up these buildings online to see what they look like now and then looking up any additional information they could find. His photographs of buildings by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor ignited a debate on buildings, images and history when they were first shown. Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid (31 October 1950 – 31 March 2016) was a British Iraqi architect, artist and designer, recognised as a major figure in architecture of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. 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 varied as the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, hailed by The New York Times as “the most important new building in America since the Cold War”; the MAXXI Museum in Rome; the Guangzhou Opera House in China; and the London 2012 Olympics Aquatics Centre.Zaha Hadid’s gift to the world was a creative genius that captured the collective imagination and influenced designers to challenge the perceived limits that were once imposed by both aesthetics and engineering.

She saw beauty and art in nature and in building and couldn't pass a construction site without stopping to sketch it.
