Item description for Rudy Ricciotti by Paul Ardenne...
Rudy Ricciotti was born in 1952 in Algier. He studied in Geneva and Marseilles before opening his own architectural office in Bandol (Bouches-du-Rhne) in 1980. His early works are characterized by a radical, carefree approach, displaying a variety of forms and full of energy. Since the beginning of the 1990s Ricciotti has been influenced by the Arte Povera and his buildings have become more austere and functional, making use of minimalist and "low-tech" solutions. With the opening of the concert hall in Potsdam, and the construction of a foot bridge in Seoul ("Footbridge of Peace", 2002), Ricciotti has finally found international recognition. Our publication is a detailed yet critical analysis of his work to date.
