Le Grand ParisThirteen-channel multimedia installation

Ten architects were asked by the French state to propose a vision of Paris in the year 2030. The team led by Jean Nouvel ran an intensive study of the city, involving two consecutive months of photography and filming from ground and air. The images were vital references describing the urban condition and became part of the foundation upon which the proposal was constructed. Hundreds of images were published in the 500-page catalog, and many more appeared in the mixed-media installation created for the exhibition at the Cité de L'Architecture.
