Zaha Hadid Architects and Central Bank of Iraq sign agreement for new Headquarters

Zaha Hadid joined H.E. Dr Sinan Al-Shabibi, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), at a ceremony to sign the agreement between CBI and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) for the design stages of the new CBI Headquarters building. The ceremony was hosted at the Victoria & Albert Museum by H.E. Dr Muhielddin Hussein Abdullah, Charges d’Affaires of the Iraqi Embassy.

ZHA have already completed the client’s Brief Development and will immediately begin the design process that will focus on developing a national symbol for the new spirit of Iraq on the shores of the Tigris River in Baghdad. ZHA will lead the international team of specialist consultants including: Adams Kara Taylor, Max Fordham, Newtecnic, DEGW, Gross Max, Davis Langdon, Arup, Warringtonfire, Winton Nightingale and A2 Project Managers.

Dr Sinan Al-Shabibi said: “The new building shall be a symbol of the Bank’s role in the economic development of Iraq and a reflection of the determination to rebuild the country.”

Zaha Hadid said: “I am deeply touched that I have been asked to design the new headquarters for the Central Bank of Iraq. I was born in Iraq and I still feel very close to it. I feel very privileged to be working in Iraq on a design of such national importance.”

We've just got rid of some gigantic glossy Zaha's ***** meant for Warsaw, but the tower designed for CBI HQ looks more in place. The minor changes will be probably made to it with time, but looks promising.

Maybe they should brake a little the monotone whiteness (it's useful for the Iraqi weather, but still it's meant to be one of Iraqi architectural landmarks I guess).

The first design you see is unlikely to be the final concept. Zaha Hadid is still working on the design of the central bank building.

I don't like this initial design anyway. I Prefer something slightly better design wise.

Worth mentioning she's also working on designing the new parliment building in Baghdad, which is projected to cost $1 billion.
