Keynote speaker at the RISING Exchange Conference, September 13th. 2017
A comprehensive survey of the work of twenty-first century architect of "The Sensual City," Jacques Ferrier
Influenced by the critic Rayner Banham, by the work of French
architect/engineer Jean Prouvé, and by his early experience of working
with Norman Foster, Jacques Ferrier has developed a highly individual
approach to architecture that seeks to harness technology in order to
create buildings and urban environments that fully engage with the
practical and emotional needs of people. Central to Ferrier’s philosophy
is the idea of the “Sensual City,” which aims to create buildings and
cities that engage with the five senses―sound, smell, sight, touch, and
taste―that compose human experience.
The Architecture of Jacques Ferrier
is a review of this master architect’s work to date in Europe and Asia:
from the French pavilion designed for the Shanghai World Expo 2010 and
the Tabarly Sailing Museum in Brittany; to showcase headquarters for
Hachette Livres and Piper-Heidsieck Champagne and the next-generation
skyscraper, Hypergreen. The book features introductory texts by
world-renowned architectural commentators Alexander Tzonis and Kenneth
Powell, and a fascinating and insightful interview with Jacques Ferrier.
