Architecture as relation
Patrick Bouchain has become a master of the art of understanding,
federating, and revealing the insights, knowledge, and skills for
inhabiting the world differently. Applying a retrospective view to the
last five decades of creation, this book presents an original inventory
of some one hundred and fifty projects devised by Patrick Bouchain from
1967 to 2017.
It follows the donation of archives to the Frac Centre-Val de Loire, whose collection is one of the largest in the world for architecture, then the solo exhibition that was presented at the first edition of the Biennale d’Architecture. Designed like an atlas, the book revealed the contents of the many notebooks created as each project developed, in which the circumvolutions of drawing are combined with collage and writing, the rebounds of thinking out loud, unfailingly stimulated by social dialogue.
