Jean Nouvel: Reflections


Short documentary about and interview with Jean Nouvel. I quite like his work. The only problem is that his buildings don't age well, or rather, they require a lot of maintenance. The last time I walked past the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris I noticed that several of the photo-sensitive motor-controlled apertures appeared broken. By the way, I never understood why the ceilings of the Institut du Monde Arabe are so low. Maybe it is because the programme required a certain number of floors.
