Jean Nouvel heads an international architectural practice, yet his architecture is sensitive and poetic and speaks to the subtlety of each specific site. In this Australian Architectural Association Black Talk 5, Nouvel describes his architectural journey from his first architectural encounter at the Beaux-Arts School, in Bordeaux, in the 1960s, to his recent and current projects. This journey explains the foundation and history behind Nouvel’s architectural ideologies and provides a basis for understanding his designs for buildings such as The Arab World Institute in Paris, The Cartier Foundation in Paris and Agbar Tower in Barcelona.
