    El Croquis 104 is a monograph on the work of French architect Dominique Perrault, covering his work from 1990 to 2001. This period saw Perrault establish himself as one of the leading architects of his generation, winning the Pritzker Prize in 2008.

    The book begins with an introduction by Perrault, in which he discusses his architectural philosophy and his approach to design. This is followed by a series of essays by architectural critics and historians, who offer their perspectives on Perrault’s work.

    The main body of the book is a comprehensive overview of Perrault’s work from this era. The book includes projects from a variety of scales, including buildings, installations, and furniture. The projects are presented in a chronological order, allowing readers to trace the development of Perrault’s architectural language.

    Some of the most notable projects featured in the book include:

    • National Library of France, Paris, France (1996): This library, which is located in Paris, France, is a stunning example of Perrault’s use of geometry and transparency. The library is made of glass, steel, and concrete, and it features a series of interlocking squares that create a sense of openness and transparency.
    • National Assembly of France, Paris, France (1997): This building, which is the seat of the French National Assembly, is a bold and experimental example of Perrault’s work. The building is made of glass, steel, and concrete, and it features a series of asymmetrical forms that create a sense of dynamism and movement.
    • Stade de France, Saint-Denis, France (1998): This stadium, which is located in Saint-Denis, France, is a dramatic and iconic example of Perrault’s work. The stadium is made of steel and concrete, and it features a series of curved forms that create a sense of movement and dynamism.

    Beyond Geometry:

    El Croquis 104 goes beyond simply showcasing Perrault’s use of geometry and transparency. The book delves into the theoretical underpinnings of his work, exploring his ideas about space, light, and the relationship between architecture and the city. Essays by renowned critics and historians provide further context and analysis, making the book a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in the cutting edge of architectural thought.

    A Legacy of Inspiration:

    El Croquis 104 continues to be a source of inspiration for architects and artists today. Its exploration of geometry, transparency, and movement reminds us that architecture can be both beautiful and functional. By showcasing the work of Dominique Perrault, this book encourages us to rethink the possibilities of architecture and to create spaces that are both inviting and inspiring.
