In the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists and adventurers. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little girl with a dream.
Learn about Zaha Hadid, who 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 own firm and designed some of the most outstanding buildings in the world—including the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Center.
This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline, historical photos and a detailed profile of Zaha's life. See more great Little People, Big Dreams titles.
