Jean Nouvel. International Practice


Prodigal son of architecture during the 1980s, Jean Nouvel (Fumel, 1945) knew to make the leap to international fame to join the list of star architects. It was a leap linked to the creation of Ateliers Jean Nouvel, a firm of 150 employees working from offices in Paris, Barcelona, Geneva, and Rome, thanks to which the French architect’s language, so often mannerist and always sophisticated, has found a place everywhere in the geographies of globalization, as demonstrated by the works featured in the following pages: the National Museum of Qatar in Doha, the European Patent Office in The Hague, and the Alda Fendi Foundation in Rome.
