Continuing their acclaimed book publishing programme and the huge success of Hand of the Architect (2009, also available from Turnaround), iconic product designers Moleskine are proud to announce a new architecture series, Inspiration and Process, which compiles individual monographs approaching the design process of different international architects: Zaha Hadid, Bolles + Wilson, Giancarlo De Carlo and Alberto Kalach.
London-based Zaha Hadid, the founding partner of Zaha Hadid Architects, is one of the world’s foremost architects and a global pioneer in research and design investigation. She was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004 and consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and urban design.
Her work experiments with new spatial concepts, intensifying existing urban landscapes in the pursuit of a visionary aesthetic that encompasses all fields of design, ranging from urban-scale works through to products, interiors and furniture.
Best known for her seminal built works such as Vitra Fire Station, Land Formation-One, Bergisel Ski-Jump, Strasbourg Tram Station, the Rosenthal Centre for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, the BMW Central Building in Leipzig, the Hotel Puerta America in Madrid, the Ordrupgaard Museum Extension in Copenhagen, and the Phaeno Science Centre in Wolfsburg, her central concerns involve a simultaneous engagement in practice, teaching.
Inspiration and Process is presented in a completely new format, featuring a classic clothbound style first used by typographer Giambattista Bodoni at the end of the 18th century to protect unbound books, with the spine covered in cloth and front and back cover in raw grey cardboard. The production also incorporates Moleskine’s distinctive features such as the elastic band, round corners, inner pocket and allowing a 180 degrees flat opening to enjoy the printed page at its utmost.
