At the pinnacle of his profession and powers, Christian de Portzamparc is a shining star in the firmament of high design.
Pritzker Prize–winning architect Christian de Portzamparc is renowned for bold yet artful architecture that is at once sensitive to its context while at the same time being novel, adventurous, and frequently exciting. One57, the soaring residential skyscraper in New York, with unparalleled views of Central Park, is perhaps his most famous building in the United States, but his work ranges widely across the globe, from an extraordinary handkerchief puff–shaped boutique for Christian Dior in Seoul to a low-winged arabesque of a building for the wine producer Cheval Blanc to a mysterious temple of the modern for Casarts in Casablanca. This volume, the first major comprehensive book on Portzamparc’s work in more than three decades, is a revelation and a comprehensive survey of the work of one of the world’s most innovative and exciting architects at the height of his powers.
Portzamparc is a very hot, now architect, building around the world in such marquee projects as one of the tallest residential towers in NY, One57; design and architecture aficionados will look to this volume as a reference.
Portzamparc is a Pritzker Prize winning architect who is both critically admired and popularly appreciated.
With architectural work from around the globe, from Paris and New York to Dubai, Shanghai, and Singapore, the book is very much international in scope and will appeal to an international market.
The book will feature both exteriors and interiors, appealing to a hardcore architecture audience as well as to those interested in interiors and modern design.
As the first major comprehensive book on Portzamparc, the book will fill a void on one of the most important architects at work today.
