Modernity, Jean Nouvel

"All types of architectural language are always linked to particularities and specifics. The first of which is era. Thurs, my architectural language is based on today's notion of modernity. For me, modernity today for me is primarily a question of materials, which automatically implies interplay with ligh, it also concerns architecture in relation to time, to the very principle of eternity and moment...it manages to bring out a building's strength."
