Fluid Totality presents the avant-garde architectural visions of one of the most innovative academic institutions of our time—Studio Hadid at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The studio founded by Zaha Hadid 15 years ago has meanwhile developed into a globally renowned think tank.

The book analyzes these developments in the context of a comprehensive process of digitization and the resulting global changes in our habitats. On the basis of theoretical and analytical essays by influential contemporary architectural theorists and critics, as well as numerous articles and statements by renowned architects and others who have been involved during the history of the studio, this volume presents the result of fifteen years of pioneering work in an international context; the particular focus being the projects of the last five years.

  • Unique monograph on the think tank headed by Zaha Hadid
  • Essays on digitization by Aaron Betsky, Sanford Kwinter, Theo Spyropoulos, Achim Menges, Masha Veech-Kosmatschof, and others
