Interview with Cristiano Benzoni & Sophie Thuillier
8 years at Ateliers Jean Nouvel, the Louis Vuitton Flagship store in Paris among countless projects, mostly international, in Spain, Italy, Mexico, Corea. A surprising mosaic of achievements...You don’t display any pretention. So, it isn’t pride that drives you to build?!
C&S: Vanity is an allegory of death. Architecture and retail are living arts. We are madly curious. Whenever we’re offered a different project, we are being given the opportunity to shape a new vision of the world, a positive thought of the future. For us, building is not about ego.
