  • Description
    • Jean Nouvel was born in 1945 in Fumel, France; a small village with a population of 5,000. Nouvel is considered a co-founder of the “Mars 1976“ movement and the ”Syndicat de l’Architecture“ association. His breakthrough as an architect was his design of the “Institut du monde arabe“ (Arab World Institute) culture center in Paris. He founded his Paris office “Ateliers Jean Nouvel“ in 1994. With 140 employees, it is one of the largest architectural firm in France today.

      Jean Nouvel’s designs are multi-faceted. He combines colors, materials and surfaces to form one homogeneous unit. The architect’s focus is on the urban context.

      The highest award was given to Nouvel in 2008. That year the French architect was honored with The Pritzker Architecture Prize.
