Emblematic figure of French architecture, Dominique Perrault gained international recognition after having won the competition for the National French library in 1989 at the age of 36. This project marked the starting point of many other public and private commissions abroad, such as the Velodrome and Olympic Swimming Pool of Berlin in 1992, the Court of Justice of the European Communities in Luxembourg in 1996, the Olympic Tennis Center in Madrid in 2002, the campus of EWHA Womans University in Seoul.
Since 2009, Dominique Perrault is working on the development of the Thermal Baths in San Pellegrino, the New City Center in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, the new FFS train station district in Locarno, Switzerland, the Grand Theatre in Albi and the Dobrée Museum in Nantes, France.
Dominique Perrault has been appointed by the French President to curate the French Pavilion for the 12th Venice Architecture Bienniale.
Lecture will take place this Friday, February 26 at 6:30pm at the Avery Hall, Wood Auditorium, Columbia GSAPP.
