Lacaton & Vassal
Publisher: Editions Hyx 2009 Author: Andreas Ruby ISBN: 9782910385590 Format: Paperback, 240pp, 210mm x 290mm
Designed by the architects themselves, this monograph is published in conjunction with an exhibition of their work at the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine in Paris.
Gathering together all of the projects designed by Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, this illustrated monograph presents broadly thematic groups of work – beginnings, landscape, dreams, freedom, transformation and the city. With a focus on pleasure, and the ethical dimension of architecture, Lacation and Vassal seek to emphasise what is essential and specific to each project, proposing an architecture that celebrates freedom.
