Electaarchitecture presents the complete edition of the work of Dominique Perrault, who achieved worldwide acclaim with the construction of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (1997). Born in 1953, Perrault won a series of international awards, including the Grand Prix National d'Architecture (1993) and the prize of the Mies van der Rohe Foundation and the European Parliament (1997). Besides the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, his design career features works of international importance, such as the Berlin velodrome and Olympic swimming pool (1992-9), where he masterfully succeeded in blending the architectural structures with the surrounding natural environment. In the field of town planning, Perrault has conceived designs for Nantes, Bordeaux, Berlin, and Caen; he also designs furniture and researches new building materials. Major current projects by Perrault are underway for the extension of the Court of Justice of the European Community (Luxembourg) and the multimedia library of Vénisseux. Lavish illustrations and the concise critical essay by Laurent Stalder make this book an invaluable tool for discovering and understanding the work of one of the leading figures of contemporary architecture.
