[Emanuelle and Laurent Beaudouin. Works and projects]. The first monograph on the work of the French architects Emmanuelle and Laurent Beaudouin, with a fine selection of constructed works, including public cultural facilities: libraries, media libraries, city halls, schools and museums, including the recently opened Matisse Museum at Cateau-Cambrésis, where the French artist was born. The volume, with an introductory essay by the critic Josep Abram, presents, in thematic order, a careful selection of the projects and realizations of the architects Laurent and Emmanuelle Beaudouin, and documents through the most significant works, influenced by the rigorous vocabulary of Le Corbusier, the level achieved by the work of the French studio, as seen in many public works and many winning competition projects. Extreme sensitivity to spatial proportions combined with great attention to lighting and the use of traditional materials are fully evident in the intriguing works illustrated in this book.
