Jean Nouvel

Jean Nouvel studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux and then ranked first in the entrance examination of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1966, graduating in 1972. Assistant to the architect Claude Parent and inspired by urbanist and essayist Paul Virilio, he started his first architecture practice in 1970. Jean Nouvel is the architect of many buildings around the world, including the Institut du Monde Arabe, Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, and Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac in Paris; the Torre Glòries in Barcelona; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid; One Central Park in Sydney; Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, United States; the Danish Radio Concert House in Copenhagen; and the Louvre Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
