Ateliers Jean Nouvel, under Pritzker Prize-winning principal Jean Nouvel, are the acknowledged leaders in the architecture of views and light: of the art and science of luminosity and illumination, of burnished metal and polished glass, of reflection and refraction, transparency and translucency and all that glitters in between. Nouvel’s is a practice uniquely suited to design excellence in Miami, a city of sea and sun and shimmer and shade.
Today, Ateliers Jean Nouvel is one of the largest architectural practices in France, with more than forty projects currently underway in over a dozen countries around the world. For this remarkable body of work—literally visionary in its concern for what it means to see and be seen, for screening and sheltering, and especially for his insight into light—Nouvel has been recognized over his distinguished career. He is a Knight of the Legion d’Honneur. He has received the Grand Prix d’Architecture; the Equerre d’Argent; the French Academy of Architecture Gold Medal; the Borromini Award; and the Venice Biennalle Gold Lion, along with the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects. In 2008 he was awarded the Pritzker Prize for architecture, considered the profession’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
