Piriphiriques' frequent participation in the international ArchiLab exhibition in Orlians and their contribution to the Architecture Biennale 2002 in Venice are sure signs of the national and international recognition which they are receiving. In 2000, Birkhduser first published an overview of their architectural work entitled M.I.N.N.E.S.O.T.A. now out of print, and the time has come to document their latest works. This new volume describes Piriphiriques4 most recent buildings and projects. Amongst the realised buildings are the Maisons Icone and MR, the transformation of the Place Furstenberg in Paris, the Cafi Charbon in Paris, and no doubt the high point is the Cabinet d'art graphique at the Centre Georges Pompidou. Also included are a number of fascinating new projects such as the Small Towers in Tsumari, Japan, the concept for the Habitat shops in Paris and the urban plans for the new Parisian Citi Universitaire.
