contributed by boeboe

In 1994, the Fondation Cartier moved, exchanging Jouy-en-Josas near Versailles for the boulevard Raspail in the heart of Paris. Its new premises were designed by Jean Nouvel, an architect celebrated in France and throughout the world for the unique way in which he “dematerializes” architectural structure. He also famously designed the Institut du Monde Arabe (1987) and the Musée du Quai Branly (2006), both in Paris. For the external façade, he designed a glass screen running parallel to the boulevard Raspail that would prolong the boulevard’s perspective. Behind this transparent wall, a cedar of Lebanon planted by Chateaubriand in 1823 emerges from a monumental flower pot clad with multi-colored mosaics, a witty creation by the Italian designer Alessandro Mendini. Above the entrance to the building rises a wall of plants commissioned in 1998 from Patrick Blanc, a specialist in tropical botany and the creator of this innovative design.
