Perrault, Dominique
Publisher: Hyx Editions
Binding: Hardcover
Language: English
Measurements: 30.00 x 25.00 cm

This weighty volume presents the spectrum of ideas, concepts, and methods that architect Dominique Perrault imagined to design and build a 21st-century library of an “entirely new” kind: the Bibliothèque nationale de France. The essential questions of the memory of history, culture, and the development of our spheres of knowledge were raised by the project at a moment when forms of knowledge appropriation and dissemination beyond the book were emerging in the form of the digital universe. Edited by Frédéric Migayrou, the monograph gathers documents on the building’s genesis and development process for the first time, tracing the untold history of this eminent project.
