BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
 
 
Born in 1953, Dominique Perrault is an architect and town planner. A committed figure in the contemporary architecture scene, teacher at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne, lecturer in France and abroad, he has been a member of the Scientific Council of the Greater Paris Internawtional Workshop since 2012. Architect of the French National Library after winning a competition in 1989, he has designed, among other works, the Velodrome and Olympic Swimming Pool in Berlin, the expansion of the Court of Justice of the European Communities in Luxembourg, the Olympic Tennis Centre in Madrid, Ewha Womans University campus in Seoul, and Fukoku Tower in Osaka.

As his approach is to transform the landscape and territories, Dominique Perrault’s work as an architect is strictly related to his role as an urban planner. His urban studies in France and abroad help describe the continuity and consistency of his method: the development of the Garonne river banks in Bordeaux and in Ile de Nantes, the business district in Pudong in Shanghai, China (1992), the UNIMETAL site in Caen (1994), the Donau City center, the Danube river bank in Vienna, Austria (2002) and the construction of the new European district and business center of Sofia in Bulgaria, and the new Quartier de l’Etang in Geneva (2011).

Curator of the French Pavilion at the 12th Architecture Biennale of Venice on the topic of metropolis (METROPOLIS ?), Dominique Perrault also joins in 2012 the Conseil Scientifique de l’Atelier International du Grand Paris (AIGP).

In parallel he conducts some major operations of heritage restoration as the restoration of the prestigious Hippodrome de Longchamp in Paris and the Dufour pavilion at the Château de Versailles.

Winner of the French Academy of Architecture’s “Grand Gold Medal for Architecture”, the Mies van der Rohe Prize for the French National Library, the French Grand National Prize for Architecture and the Silver T-Square Prize for the Berlier Industrial Centre, and the Seoul Metropolitan Architecture Award for Ewha Womans University. His work is exposed in the greatest museums of the world.

In 2014, he will deliver the tallest tower in Vienna, an icon of the new business district, as well as the Grand Theatre in Albi, France.
