Item description for Architecture Studio Europe: The European Parliament, Strasbourg by Architecture Studio Europe & Carola von Betrunk...
The extraordinary photographs in this volume invite the reader to ''enter'' the European Parliament in Strasbourg. This book, realized in collaboration with Poltrona Frau and enhanced by the graphic design of Massimo Vignelli, offers a complete vision of the impressive architectural complex conceived by the Architecture Studio Europe of Paris, winner of the 1991 international contest for the construction of the European headquarters: 660,000 square feet and 200 feet tall with 18 floors. The photographs here, taken at night, capture the structure's majestic beauty and the aerial perspective highlights its size, waterfront faade, and main entrance as well as the square, hanging garden, and the office tower's promenade. Also included are numerous interior shots: the entrance, the hallways, the entrance ramps, the parking lot, the chairs--real works of art that are practical and comfortable as well as pleasing to the eye--and the indoor garden which, visible from every part of the complex, is the backbone of the building. The book ends with an impressive view of the elliptical entrance courtyard seen from below the office tower.
