Odile Decq and Benoit Cornette created Odile Decq Benoit Cornette Architects Urbanistes in 1985. Soon after Benoit Cornette died in a car accident, but the firm΄s name and spirit have carried on with Odile’s work constantly reaching new levels of innovation. This book is a visually striking interplay of 300 images and plans with fantastic colors and layouts; a world mixed with red and black, flame and darkness, violence and peace by the French architect and free radical, Odile. This is an exciting presentation of her work and stories told by friends and other prominent architects in 348 pages full of desire for innovation and progress.An inordinate desire to seek the horizon is present in the architecture that I create. In the same way, I love single malt whisky, with the merest hint of peat. There is in my architecture something of the nature of whisky and of the succession of sensations, both subtle and explosive, which invade the palate at its approach.
