The World Is Not a Rectangle

To those curves and twists!

Zaha's childhood was spent in Iraq alongside her parents and siblings, where she developed a deep appreciation for nature and a fascination for people's lives from the past. Her dreams revolved around designing her city, an ambition that took shape as she started creating her clothes from a young age. With a passion for mathematics, Zaha excelled in school and studied architecture in London. But what happened to Zaha's dreams?

We picked this book for its theme. This book pays homage to Zaha Hadid, an internationally acclaimed architectural figure. Her remarkable work continues to make a resounding impact on the world. The book delves into her initial challenges as both an outsider and a woman in architecture. The illustrations, while uncomplicated, perfectly complement the narrative.

The World Is Not a Rectangle is a perfect tribute to the influential architect Zaha Hadid. Through Jeanette Winter's narration and illustrations, the book beautifully portrays Zaha's life journey in a way that is accessible and engaging for children.
