In recent years a remarkable generation of young architects has developed in France, whose work is often characterized by a fearless use of material--often steel and concrete--or by the play of transparency and the dissolving of materiality. Projects such as Nasrine Seraji's American Center in Paris, the Academy of Fine Arts in Limoges by LabFac or the Cemetary in Roquebrune by Marc Barani have all attracted international acclaim. This book presents 14 of the most interesting offices from all regions of France and attempts to provide an overall view of this phenomenon. Amongst the offices documented are: Avant Travaux, Laurent + Emanuelle Beaudoin, Besset + Lyon, Frederic Borel, Brochet, Lajus Pueyo, Manuelle Gautrand, Herault-Arnod, Lipsky + Rollet, Francois Roche, Tectoniques and Tetrarc.
