726. Baghdad new architectural facade
















Dear Zaha,

"My aim was to create an architecture which at once
acknowledges the place in which it is built, yet sacrifices
nothing to modern technical capability. At the same time
I was concerned to understand analytically the reasoning
behind traditional architectural devices of environmental
control such as courtyards, screen walls, natural
ventilation and reflected light." (Rifat Chadirji)
The Iraqi Federation of Industries Administration Building
is shown in the center of the picture.

Best regards,
R
