Christian de Portzamparc
Author: Christian de Portzamparc
Christian de Portzamparc is one of the most famous architects of France, with a large international oeuvre.
In 2006 he won the prize of architecture Almere with his project "De Citadel" in the new city centre. This book is an acquaintance with this architect of international fame whose oeuvre has not been known well enough in The Netherlands - Almere has been the only place in The Netherlands so far to have realised a large project by his bureau. De Citadel of Almere is representative of the work of such an outstanding architect.
Christian de Portzamparc never builds a simple building, but always works at complete areas that are surrounded and articulated by building mass. Visual art and design are important parts of it. He knows how to create seclusion amidst the city bustle. The way he translates symbolism , derived from ancient building styles, into a contemporary expressionism, adds an extra dimension.
The book shows beautiful images of the most representative projects and gives an insight in the work of De Portzamparc.
