Jean Nouvel

French architect Jean Nouvel was born in 1945 in Fumel in south-western France. A graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Nouvel founded, since 1972, several architectural practices, among which the most recent one is Ateliers Jean Nouvel, created in 1994. His portfolio includes a wide range of iconic structures, such as the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, which features a striking façade inspired by traditional Arabic screens, and the Torre Agbar in Barcelona, a vibrant and dynamic skyscraper that has become a symbol of the city. Throughout his career, Jean Nouvel has received numerous awards and honors, including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1989 and the Pritzker Prize in 2008.
