Dominique Perrault - "The Disappearance of Architecture: Between Presence and Absence"

DPA Dominique Perrault Architecture, Paris

A major figure of French architecture, Dominique Perrault gained international recognition after winning the competition for the National French Library, Paris, in 1989 at the age of 36. This project marked the starting point of many other public and private commissions abroad, such as the Velodrome and Olympic Swimming Pool, Berlin (1992), the extension of the European Court of Justice, Luxembourg (1996), the Olympic Tennis Centre, Madrid (2002), the Ewha Women’s University campus, Seoul (2004), the Fukoku Tower, Osaka (2010), and the Pasarela del Arganzuela footbridge in Madrid (2011).
