The work of two French architectural masters, creators of the design for the Macro in Rome. The book accompanies the retrospective on the two architects held at the Macro, from 27 September 2003.
An exhaustive volume on the work of two masters of the contemporary architectural scene in France, authors of the project for the new Museo di Arte Contemporanea in Rome. The monograph, introduced by a critical essay by Alessandro De Magistris, reviews the most interesting works designed by the Breton architects Odile Decq and Benoit Cornette, from the beginning of the nineties to the present day. Their approach places the theme of space and the idea of process and route at the center of the project: movement represents the primary element of spatial organization. In addition to the project for the extension of the Museo di Arte Contemporanea in Rome on the site of the former Peroni brewery, the volume presents, among others: the library of the University of Nantes, the administrative office of the Banque Populaire de l’Ouest at Montgermant, Rennes, the Saint Gobain Research Center at Aubervilliers and the project for the third bridge of the city of Rotterdam.
