Noumea : Centre Culturel Jean-Marie Tjibaou Paperback / softback
by RENZO PIANO
This project is also the exploration of "another world", seemingly remote: the Pacific and the culture of ephemeral, the encounter with the great Kanak people and his history suspended between past and future.
An adventure that ends with the discovery of an unsuspected affinity: "I'm more Kanak than you are", Renzo Piano will say. Just like the previous monographs, the presented material is unpublished, retrieved thanks to the research and classification in the archives of the Renzo Piano Foundation, and commentated with sketches, notes and memories of Renzo Piano.
It becomes a sort of travel journal, intimate and powerful. The stories of Renzo Piano, Marie-Claude Tjibaou, Alban Bensa and Glenn Murcutt were recorded and faithfully transcribed, so that the reader can live the adventure of this project, accompanied by the voice of the protagonists.
