JEAN NOUVEL ON LOUISIANA
In 2005 french starchitect Jean Nouvel and the Louisiana Museum came together to collaborate on the exhibition 'Jean Nouvel - Louisiana Manifesto'.
Ten years on, Nouvel has revisited the museum and shares his thoughts and passion about a place where architecture, nature and art belong together. "At Louisiana," says Nouvel, "each thing is directly felt, and everything is at home".
