In this special edition on recent work by Jean Nouvel, the period since just prior to his winning the Pritzker Prize (2008) until the present moment is reviewed in rich detail. Nineteen projects are featured, reflecting the variety of scales and typologies in the architect’s oeuvre. Among them are works in the Middle East, such as the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the National Museum of Qatar, but also the Danish Radio Concert House in Copenhagen, City Hall in Montpellier, housing in Chelsea, Bordeaux, Barcelona, and Sydney, and the recently completed Philharmonie de Paris. Through an exceptional collection of photographs and drawings, each speaks of Nouvel’s versatility and rigour.
