The World Is Not a Rectangle

£12.99

Zaha Hadid’s Iraqi childhood is suggested to have inspired the shapes and forms she wove into her inspiring architectural designs. Jeanette Winter expands upon the late architect’s background, from her early life to her education in London, and thereafter to the obstacles she faced time and time again to have her ground-breaking ideas accepted and commissioned. The fact that her works are revered around the world, and the foundation she initiated flourishing, makes the resistance to her designs seem more ludicrous.

This is a wonderful title, essential to every home and classroom. The underlying messages of standing tall, maintaining your vision, and working hard, are evident. We recommend ‘The World Is Not a Rectangle‘ to readers aged from 7 years of age, and their parents, teachers and grandparents.
