Development of the New Central Bank of Iraq Headquarters Building

Baghdad, Iraq

Zaha Hadid Architects have recently been appointed for the preparation of a feasibility study, brief development and concept design stage for the new headquarters of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) in Baghdad. The first workshop took place in Istanbul, Turkey on 14 August 2010, where the CBI technical committee headed by his Excellency the Governor of the CBI met with Zaha Hadid Architects and their sub-consultant team.

This preliminary workshop concentrated on the vision of the project’s objectives, success criteria and the operational functions that will be performed by the bank through the coming decades as a national institution that represents the symbol of sovereignty of the Republic of Iraq. The new headquarters building will enable the monetary authority of the CBI to perform its continued role serving stability, development and economic growth in Iraq.
