Abstract

Member of the Academy of Fine Arts, Aymeric Zublena has lived through 50 years of architectural history. He has designed more than 100 structures, including the Georges Pompidou Hospital and the Stade de France in Paris, and the vertical lift bridge in Rouen. As witness and agent, he has participated in debates on building large structures, lived through the fertile period of functionalism, and has contributed to the invention of planned communities in Greater Paris. He has also experienced the domination of modern architecture, post-modernism’s setbacks, the rise of high tech, the radical changes that have taken place in the last thirty years, and the emergence of sustainable cities.
Zublena has measured the strengths and weakness of each of these trends. He has been careful to preserve his independence, which is not only the driving force behind his singular career, but also the force behind his work built on strength, rationalism, and urbanity.
A public, and yet private individual, Aymeric Zublena has allowed himself to be portrayed here, for the first time. Through the texts and images of this comprehensive monograph, Zublena recounts his impressive life as a master builder.
