Item description for Zaha Hadid: Car Park and Terminus Strasbourg by Zaha Hadid & Peter Giovanni...
Zaha Hadid gestaltete die neue Endstation der Strassenbahnlinie "B" in Strassburg. Hier, am "interchange Terminal Hoenheim-Nord" entschied sich die Architektin fr eine bemerkenswerte Lsung. Das Projekt begeistert durch ambivalente Rume und interaktive Bezge. Die eigene Bewegung wird zu einem wesentlichen Bestandteil des Entwurfs. Materialisierte Vektoren, ein imaginrer Schatten, und ambivalente Bauteile verschmelzen in diesem Entwurf zu einer komplexen Sinneswahrnehmung. Die Decke wird zu Wand und Boden. Sttzen werden zu Lampen. Sprachlich schwer fassbar zeigt Zaha Hadids neustes Bauwerk, wie Interaktion, Bewegung und Ambiguitt baulich dargestellt werden kann.

More About Zaha Hadid & Peter Giovanni
Zaha Hadid, born in Baghdad, Iraq, in 1950, began her study of architecture in 1972 at the Architectural Association (AA) in London, and was awarded the Diploma Prize in 1977. She then joined the Office of Metropolitan Architectur, began teaching at the AA with Rem Koolhaus and Eliza Senghelis, and later led her own studio at the school. Her winning entry for The Peak Club, Hong Kong, in 1983 was followed by first-place awards in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cardiff, London, Cincinnati, Rome, Salerno, Innsbruck, and Wolfsburg. Completed projects include the Fire Station and LF one in Weil am Rhein, Germany, and the Mind Zone at the Millenium Dome in London. Her most recent installations are Addressing the Century at the Hayward Gallery in London and stage sets for the Pet Shop Boys World Tour and the Charleroi Dance Company in Belgium. Hadid's office is currently working on a variety of projects: a contemporary art center in Rome, a ski jump in Innsbruck, a major bridge structure in Abu Dhabi, and a car park for the Strasbourg Tramway.
Reviews - What do customers think about Zaha Hadid: Car Park and Terminus Strasbourg?
I think he doth protests too much Jun 5, 2006
the closed mind apparent in the tone and content of the other reviewer states all you need to know about their ability to review the book. Perhaps if this person went to a Hadid project, instead of judging it via the media (which they perversly declaim) they might understand the work's power, its significance and its warmth. Or perhaps they should stop living in fear. It is the other reviewer that needs to grow up; oh, and try thinking. Anyway, its a good book.
Truly Dreadful Design May 8, 2004
Put simply, the design is cold, brutal, ignorant and devoid of any redeeming human qualities ... in short, it is representative of most of Hadid's oeuvre. That she appeals to so many younger people has more to do with flash computer graphics than any valuable lessons in architecture. This is kid's stuff, not the work of a sohisticated or intellectually mature architect. If you are the sort of person who is impressionable, this book is aimed at YOU. For an architectural education, try a book on Barragan, Scarpa, Renzo Piano, Fay Jones or almost any practitioner capable of actually constructing a well-designed building. This is graphic hogwash. Eye-candy for infant minds.
