Jean-Yves Barrier: Architect and Urbanist is a showcase of thirty years of architectural work of Jean-Yves Barrier, ranging from individual houses to apartment buildings, schools, libraries, university buildings, museums, town halls, offices, public spaces and thoroughfares, to civil-engineering infrastructure. Common threads in Barrier's creations include environmentally friendly "passive" energy-saving designs, and a will to promote pragmatic urbanism without necessarily surrendering to monotonous mass-identical productions. Full color photography on almost every page (except for the sample floor plans, which are in black-and-white) complemented by extensive analytical text are the hallmark of this in-depth study. A worthy and welcome addition to architectural studies shelves, especially recommended for college libraries.
