Leading French architect Dominique Perrault moved onto the world stage with the completion of the French National Library in 1989. With a portfolio that spans major public buildings, apartment blocks, hotels, offices and master plans, his design for an Olympic Village helped Paris win its bid for the 2024 Games.
In this talk, Dominique Perrault discusses his new campus centre for Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. Challenging the client's competition brief, he blended the building into the landscape to connect the campus to the city and create a new public park and, inadvertently, a space for political protest. As Perrault explains, his design for Ewha grew out of his ongoing interest in underground architecture which began with the French National Library.
This talk was recorded at Dominique Perrault Architecture in Paris, August 2017.
