Nouvel by Nouvel
France’s leading architect designs his own monograph
Based on the massive XXL monograph from 2008, this widely updated edition brings the architect’s definitive career overview to one volume. The result is a nearly 800-page tome with more than 25 recent projects and new photos commensurate with Jean Nouvel’s inimitable talent, which highlights milestone projects, among them his Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London, as well as works in progress such as the spectacular Sharaan Desert Resort, a hotel that will be carved into sandstone rock in the Al-'Ula desert in Saudi Arabia. The collection’s graphic design and images were conceived and selected by the architect himself, making this publication a genuine Nouvel by Nouvel, inside and out.
Jean Nouvel (born in 1945) studied in Bordeaux and then at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. A founding member of the Syndicat de l’Architecture, he received the RIBA Gold Medal in 2001 and the Pritzker Prize in 2008. Nouvel has built such iconic projects as the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris, the Copenhagen Concert Hall, and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His TASCHEN books include the Architecture Now! series and monographs on Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Richard Meier, Zaha Hadid, and soon Norman Foster.
