Jean Nouvel

Jean Nouvel

Architect, Ateliers Jean Nouvel

French architect and Pritzer Prize winner Jean Nouvel's most recent projects include the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Philharmonie de Paris, as well as New York's controversial Tower Verre, a luxury residence and hotel with some floors used for MoMA exhibitions.

The task of the architect is to encompass everything about the site, starting from the concrete conditions and the sensory impressions created by those, to memories of the place, through empathy to vision.
