Renzo Piano is an architect whose work seems increasingly relevant to our times. One of the few architects to be intimately involved in each stage of a building’s development, from its concept and masterplan to its construction and detailing, Renzo’s insights into his own projects are revealing and insightful. Each new design never fails to be innovative and exciting.
On Tour with Renzo Piano offers the rare opportunity to join Piano himself on a journey around 22 of his key buildings, each presented through personal text and a photographic tour, which takes the reader from the external to the internal and to the detail. The selection includes the impressive Centre Georges Pompidou, the Beyeler Foundation and Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Center. Also presenting the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, this book offers an intimate guide to the work of one of the most respected and visionary architects of our time.
