In this autobiographical account, international architect, Jean Nouvel, looks at his work from his debut at the end of the 1970s up to his most recent projects, giving a description of his planning philosophy and, in certain passages, proposing his own ideas regarding the future of architecture. The book is illustrated by photographs from the architect's personal archive and focuses in particular on Nouvel's principle works, including the Institute du Monde Arabe and Fondation Cartier in Paris, the restructuring of the Lyons Opera House and the Lafayette Department Store in Berlin. The book is part of a series offering leading contemporary architects an opportunity to publish their reflections on the state of architecture today and to analyze their own projects.
