Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Limited to 1,000 signed and numbered copies packaged in a translucent plexiglass slipcase reminiscent of the translucent facades often seen in Jean Nouvel designs. Jean Nouvel worked for over five years with author Philip Jodidio on this new, prodigiously illustrated TASCHEN monograph, a book that will finally give the full measure of the architect's talent. Two 400-page hardcover volumes give the most complete overview to date of Jean Nouvel's career, including works in progress such as the new Louvre in Abu Dhabi, the Philharmonie de Paris, and the extension of the MoMA in New York. The book's graphic design and images were conceived and selected by the architect; in addition, the transparent printed dust jackets mimic the architect's own tendency to play with contrasts and overlaid patterns. One can truly say that this publication is Nouvel by Nouvel, inside and out.

Synopsis:

Nouvel is the most important and original contemporary architect of France. He worked together with Jodidio for five years, resulting in two 400-page volumes providing the most complete overview yet of Nouvel's work.
