Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, May 1, 2000 - Architecture - 157 pages
Born in 1944, Christian Hauvette, studied under the philosopher Roland Barthes before going on to train as an architect. Since 1980 he has headed his own office in Paris. Today, Hauvette is one of France's leading architects. His architecture is characterised by a clear, constructive purpose which is at the same time highly expressive. Jean Prouvé's theories are much in evidence in his work. This monograph provides an in-depth overview on the buildings and projects of the 90s, including the School of Waters and Forests in Clermont-Ferrand and his sensational headquarters of the Caisse Française de Développement in Paris, analysing the essential characteristics of Hauvette's creativity.
