A monograph on this prominent French architect, Yves Lion, and a survey of
Born in Casablanca in 1945, Yves Lion has been a pre-eminent figure in the
French architectural scene and debate for some 30 years. Now, leading
architectural historian Jean-Paul Cohen has produced the first overall survey of
Lion's work, describing the key themes and focus of Lion's oeuvre, including his
pursuit of urban planning and housing issues, and his discourse with James
Stirling, Charles Jencks, Aldo van Eyck, Bernard Tschumi and others.
Comprehensive documentation and illustrations of Lion's buildings complement
Cohen's essay. Examples include the Nantes Opera House, the French Embassy in
Beyrouth and the Maison Europ enne de la Photographie in Paris.
