Little People, Big Dreams Zaha Hadid by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara
Zaha Hadid grew up in Baghdad, Iraq, surrounded by music. She was a curious and confident child who designed her own modernist bedroom at nine years old. As a young woman studying at University in Beirut, she was described as the most outstanding pupil the teacher had ever met. With her spectacular vision and belief in the power of architecture, she founded her firm. She designed some of the most outstanding buildings in the world—including the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre.
She was the first woman and the first Muslim to be awarded the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honor.
This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the architect's life.
Zaha Hadid recommended for ages 4-8.
