Precious yet fragile testimonies to past civilizations, tows deserve special attention to allow the contact with each new generation to be a source of enrichment. Architects have a mission to perpetuate and enhance this patrimony, whilst also building that of the future. Their role is central to these considerations if the city is to be a factor of urbanity shared by all. From the renovation of the Olympia to the Beijing Olympics, from the Place Vendome town houses to the China Executive leadership Academy, Pudong in Shangai, Antony Bechu is ever experimenting and renewing major urban principals based on a respect for other cultures, for the natural and patrimonial environment, and for the programmatic and social mix. This book focuses on several of them, illustrated by fifty-six selected operations.
