"This volume provides a critical look at that which has been a watershed in Dominique Perrault's creative development, namely the realization of the Velodrome and Olympic Swimming Pool in Berlin: a fundamental sign of an architectural research in pursuit of redesigning the landscape. It examines his recent works which have been characterized by a continuous attention to research on architectural language and the relationship between public and private space in an attempt to trace a "third way" - moving towards an integration with the environment in which the geographic matrix and experimentation take precedence over historical aspects. The volume features two very recent projects under way started in 2004 and 2003 respectively, the Ewha Women's Campus in Seoul, Korea and the new Mariinsky Opera House in Saint Petersburg." "These works and other such as the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris, the extension of the European Community's Court of Justice in Luxembourg and the Media Library of Venissieux have served to confirm Dominique Perrault's position among the most significant protagonists of contemporary architecture." --Book Jacket.
