Download Four Projects – Emmanuel Cattari & Associates Jean Nouvel pdf
In the 1980s, Nouvel achieved sudden international fame with his building for the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. It is seen as an astonishing opening-out – a series of buildings representing new vistas of research in the 1990s. The four projects featured in this work – Dumont-Schauberg headquarters and Mediapark in Cologne, Victoria building in Frankfurt, Galeries Lafayette in Berlin – represent Nouvel's fascination with image technology, with dematerialising built forms using reflection, refraction and transparency, combined with explorations of the themes of tension, interface and virtuality.
