Publication director: Françoise Fromonot
Birkhäuser, Basel. 2020
For close to thirty years, Michel Desvigne has designed and implemented numerous major projects in France and around the world. This book presents in detail ten of these territorial scale operations. What intentions, strategies and professional culture underscore their design process? What landscapes and uses are produced by these projects that mature over a long period of time? In this book, Michel Desvigne reflects on these questions, which are central to his practice, and on the main themes that run through his work. His insights and analysis are complemented by the observations of architecture critic Françoise Fromonot, landscape historian Dorothée Imbert, philosopher Gilles A. Tiberghien and photographer Patrick Faigenbaum.
