Jean Nouvel: the elements of architecture
Since his stunning Institut du Monde Arabe opened in Paris in 1987, French architect Jean Nouvel has designed widely published buildings throughout Europe. This superbly illustrated volume--the first book to be published on Nouvel since the establishment of his new firm, Architectures Jean Nouvel--features approximately twenty-five built and forthcoming projects, including his most important commission to date: his Concert Hall in Lucerne, Switzerland, scheduled to open in August 1998.
