Widely acknowledged as France’s most important contemporary architect, Jean Nouvel has completed famed buildings from Paris to Minnesota. For Jean Nouvel: The Complete Works, Nouvel worked for 5 years with Taschen’s architectural editor Phillip Jodidio to create a two volume monograph. Each of the images and the graphic design of the books was chosen by the architect himself.
