L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui 439 – 90 YEARS

L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui 439 – 90 YEARS | In November 2020, AA celebrates its 90th anniversary: 90 years of debates, investigations, 90 years of paper, graphic design, photography and drawing – 90 years of architecture which are honored in this issue No.439, through a selection of archives, as many gems making this international magazine so special.

On this occasion, the report focuses on Paris and a selection of the French capital iconic projects, which have marked both the 20th century and AA’s pages. The profile is dedicated to a young and prodigy architect, Jean Nouvel, who’s carreer has always been a focus for AA. The magazine has indeed recorded all of his endeavours in the French capital. Looking back on Paris’ evolution during the 20th century also means recalling extraordinary projects as Pierre Chareau’s Glass House, Bernard Zehrfuss’ Unesco building, Émile Aillaud’s residential “cloud” towers — and also many historical competitions such as the one for the Parc de La Villette or the counter-competition for the Paris Halles, a “pirate” operation which made quite a stir back then. AA’s pages are of the few to have recorded this debate. The “Design” section reproduces a text by Mallet-Stevens, founder with Le Corbusier, Jean Prouvé, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand of the Union des Artistes Modernes, remaining that the magazine has always acted as a mouthpiece for all forms of creation.

To celebrate its exceptional anniversary, AA’s team has invited a few contemporary architects (Salima Naji, Manuel Núñez Yanowsky, Manuelle Gautrand, Kengo Kuma, Eva Prats et Ricardo Flores, Paolo Portoghesi, FREAKS, Martha Thorne, Aldric Beckmann, Yung Ho Chang, Dominique Perrault et Chartier Dalix) to share their favorite issue. These stories offer a panorama of AA’s various lives and the different commitments the magazine has supported since its creation in 1930 by André Bloc.
