Pushing the boundaries
Celebrated French architect Jean Nouvel, established his first architecture practice in 1970. Since then, his influential works have gained worldwide recognition and earned numerous awards. These include architecture’s highest honour, the prestigious Pritzker Prize, awarded to Nouvel in 2008, acknowledging the “persistence, imagination, exuberance, and, above all, an insatiable urge for creative experimentation” as qualities abundant in his work.
His notable contributions to the world of architecture are the Institut du Monde Arabe and Fondation Cartier.
