Description

After her partner Benoit Cornette died in a car crash, Decq carried on with their firm's architecture, her work constantly reaching new levels of innovation. This book explores a world mixed with red and black, flame and darkness, violence and peace - it offers a chance to get acquainted with the architect, her works and her story, as told by friends and other prominent architects. This book is expansive, opulent and lethally attractive.

'An inordinate desire to seek the horizon is present in the architecture that I create...There is in my architecture something of the nature of whisky and of the succession of sensations, both subtle and explosive, which invade the palate at its approach.'
