About This Book

At the pinnacle of his profession and powers, Christian de Portzamparc is a shining star in the firmament of high design.
 
Pritzker Prize–winning architect Christian de Portzamparc is renowned for bold yet artful architecture that is at once sensitive to its context while at the same time being novel, adventurous, and frequently exciting. One57, the soaring residential skyscraper in New York, with unparalleled views of Central Park, is perhaps his most famous building in the United States, but his work ranges widely across the globe, from an extraordinary handkerchief puff–shaped boutique for Christian Dior in Seoul to a low-winged arabesque of a building for the wine producer Cheval Blanc to a mysterious temple of the modern for Casarts in Casablanca. This volume, the first major comprehensive book on Portzamparc’s work in more than three decades, is a revelation and a comprehensive survey of the work of one of the world’s most innovative and exciting architects at the height of his powers.
