Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost and Dominique Perrault
Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost and Dominique Perrault have been engaged in contemporary design since 1989, marking the beginning of the National Library of France (François Mitterrand site) adventure. Together, they have cultivated an original architectural style, marked by technical innovation; for example, they were the first to use metal mesh in architecture. Over the course of more than three decades, their collaboration has resulted in the construction of a number of emblematic buildings, including the major extension to the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg, the Ewha Women’s University in Korea, the DC Tower in Austria, the redevelopment of the Pavilion Dufour at the Château de Versailles, and the renovation of the Poste du Louvre in Paris.
The two designers infuse their architectural universe to interior design, creating furniture, objects and lighting that are radical in their approach to comfort and functionality.
