MARC MIMRAM: ARCHITECTURE & STRUCTURE. Philip Jodidio. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2015. 212 pp. with 190 ills. (166 col.) and 64 col. reference ills. 25 x 31 cm. ISBN 9783791354767 Bilingual in English and French.
Publisher's description: A generously illustrated monograph on the acclaimed French architect and engineer Marc Mimram whose original work is influenced by both disciplines. Since his debut as an architect and engineer with a footbridge over a highway in Toulouse, France, Marc Mimram has completed a large number of civil engineering structures and architectural projects in France and around the world. This book highlights Mimram's distinctive penchant for connecting architecture with the natural world, as well as his profound understanding of the relationship between design and structure. Looking at key themes in Mimram's work over three decades, this volume examines works such as the School of Architecture in Strasbourg and the award-winning Hassan II Bridge in Morocco to show how the architect's elegant and economical designs evolve from an appreciation of the natural or urban landscape of each project.
