  • The Author

    Jean Nouvel

    Jean Nouvel was born in Fumel, France, in 1945.

    His many titles and distinctions include the French Gran Prix National de l’Architecture (1987), the Aga Khan Prize (for work on the Arab World Institute in Paris), the Gold Medals of the French Academy of Architecture and of the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Borromini Prize (awarded in 2001 for the Lucerne Culture and Congress Centre), the Praemium Imperiale prize, created by the Japan Art Association (2001) and the Pritzker Prize (The Nobel Prize of Architecture) in 2008.

    His greatest architectural achievements include the Arab World Institute in Paris, the Opera House in Lyon, the Cartier Foundation in Paris, Galeries Lafayette in Berlin, the Culture and Conference Centre in Lucerne, the Conference Centre in Tours, the Andel commercial and office complex in Prague, the Law Courts in Nantes and, most recently, the Dentsu Tower in Tokyo, the Museum of Archaeology in Périgueux and the technology and research centre in Wismar. His latest projects include the offices for Aguas de Barcelona, the UEC offices in Frankfurt, the headquarters of the Richemont Corporation in Genoa, the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, and Copenhagen’s Concert Hall.

    When designing the project for the Puerta America, Nouvel felt it was important “to make links between freedom and pleasure”. The concept this French architect wanted to convey in his work for the Puerta America hotel is “the crossroads between art and architecture, allowing people to live some exceptional moments, and creating small worlds for them to enjoy”.
