La première monographie complète d'un des architectes français contemporains les plus en vogue.

Influencé tout autant par le critique Rayner Banham que par le travail de Jean Prouvé en passant par ses premières expériences professionnelles avec Norman Foster, Jacques Ferrier a développé une approche très personnelle de l'architecture qui utilise la maîtrise technique afin de créer des bâtiments et des environnements urbains en complète adéquation avec les besoins des usagers. En effet, l'idée de "Ville Sensuelle", particulièrement centrale dans sa philosophie, se propose d'explorer toutes les composantes sensorielles de la perception spatiale (son, odeur, vue, toucher et goût) et qui structurent l'expérience humaine.


The first complete overview of one of France's most celebrated contemporary architects and his individualistic architecture and urban designs.

Influenced by the critic Rayner Banham, by the work of French architect/engineer Jean Prouvé, and by his early experience of working with Norman Foster, Jacques Ferrier has developed a highly individual approach to architecture that seeks to harness technology in order to create buildings and urban environments that fully engage with the practical and emotional needs of people. Central to Ferrier's philosophy is the idea of the Sensual City,? which aims to create buildings and cities that engage with the five senses?sound, smell, sight, touch, and taste?that compose human experience.

The Architecture of Jacques Ferrier is a review of this master architect's work to date in Europe and Asia: from the French pavilion designed for the Shanghai World Expo 2010 and the Tabarly Sailing Museum in Brittany; to showcase headquarters for Hachette Livres and Piper-Heidsieck Champagne and the next-generation skyscraper, Hypergreen. The book features introductory texts by world-renowned architectural commentators Alexander Tzonis and Kenneth Powell, and a fascinating and insightful interview with Jacques Ferrier.
