Audience: General; Professional and scholarly. Subjects: Perrault, Dominique. Studio Dominique Perrault, Architect. AMB: Individual architects - BIC. Summary: Dominique Perrault, born in 1953, is one of the leading figures of contemporary architecture. In addition to the French National Library, one of the most important buildings realized in Paris in the 1990s, Perrault's career features other works of international importance, suchas the Berlin Velodrome and Olympic swimming-pool (1992-9), where he masterfully succeeded in blending the architectural structures with the natural environment. In the area of town-planning, Perrault has conceived designs for Nantes, Bordeaux, Berlin and Caen; he also designs furniture and researches new building materials. Major current projects by Perrault are under way for the extension of the Court of Justice of the European Community (Luxemburg) and the multimedia library of Venissieux. This monograph presents, in chronological order, the most important achievements of Perrault, along with several projects for invited international competition. Each project has a complete project description and it is illustrated with photographs and drawings. The illustrations and the concise critical essay by Laurent Stalder should make this book an invaluable tool for discovering and understanding the work of one the most appealing contemporary architects at work today. 1 Kg.

In the field of town-planning Perrault has conceived designs for Nantes, Bordeaux, Berlin and Caen; he also designs furniture and researches new building materials. Major current projects by Perrault are under way for the extension of the Court of Justice of the European Community (Luxemburg) and the multi-media library of Venissieux.
