Item description for Digital Hadid by Patrik Schumacher...

The book describes the transition from drawing to computing in the work of Zaha Hadid. The hallmark of Zaha Hadid's early work was the innovation and expansion of graphic media to be utilised as new design techniques. On this basis a new architectural language and conception of space was developed. The analog techniques employed - like interpenetraion, isometric and perspectival distortion, dynamic bending and warping - anticipate the possibilities currently offered by advanced animation software. Intermediate techniques like distortion and "smearing" using the xerox machine established a fertile ground for the quick assimilation of the new digital tools in the process of form finding. The book elaborates a series of recent projects where various digital techniques have become an essential ingredient of the project development.

Reviews - What do customers think about Digital Hadid?

Poor in content rich in images..  May 16, 2006
I was looking forward to reading this book but was disappointed when finished with it especially since it's written by Zaha's right-hand design partner and office director. I expected it to be a description of Zaha Hadid's design process, the move from manual to digital design and the techniques used to create form and design buildings. One rather gets long empty characterizations of the poetics of form and Zaha's move from deconstructive to organic shapes.
It's full of many nice images though if that's what you're looking for. To sum up, this book is good only as a brochure..
little but full  Mar 24, 2006
i've get this book for my thesis. the book describes a new design language about graphic space and digital evolution. if you are interesting future design techniques you must get this book.
