An architect, Jean Nouvel, and a philosopher, Jean Baudrillard, approach the theme of singularity, the result of a certain action of man.
[Architecture and the void. Singular objects]. Architecture seen through the eyes of one of the greatest living philosophers, Jean Baudrillard. Reflections on design by the creator of the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art of Paris and the building for Galeries Lafayette in Berlin. An architect, Jean Nouvel, and a philosopher, Jean Baudrillard, discuss the theme of the singular, the result of a certain action of man. Singular objects, which the philosopher urges architects to produce, are indispensable entities whose beauty is based on the autonomy of the object, its absolute non-reproducibility. Architectural designs and the essays of the philosopher form the background against which the dialogue is structured. The two voices intersect, thoughts are concatenated: the reflection addresses all the contemporary semantic categories, outlining the great changes in progress in our way of experiencing and interacting with space.
