Christian de Portzamparc by Gilles de Bure

15 September 2003

At the time of the release of this book, Christian de Portzamparc was the only French laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize, the architectural equivalent of the Nobel. His work includes the Cité de la Musique and the Café Beaubourg in Paris, the LVMH tower in New York – the only French Tower block there by a Frenchman – and most recently the French embassy in Berlin. Resolutely comtemporary, he is nonetheless part of the great classical tradition, his style combining fluidity and concentration, elegance and assertiveness, poetry and rigor. In its portrait of the artist as architect, this book is a thorough introduction to Christian de Portzamparc’s thinking and practice.
