"There is a whole new world that interests us, because finally, the Profession of Architecture is work in the service of humanity." - Charlotte Perriand, Letter to Pierre Jeanneret, 1936.
What is this "new world" imagined by architect and designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) ? How did she reconceive our relationship with the natural world and the role of art in everyday life ? The answers provided by this pioneer of modernity seem astonishingly relevant to us today.
Published on the occasion of a major retrospective dedicated by the Fondation Louis Vuitton to Charlotte Perriand and her links with the artists and architects of her era, this book presents her work, which was characterized by commitment and freedom.
