While great architecture comes from the minds of visionary designers, outside factors can also influence the creative processes – especially in a country caught amid two hundred years of massive social, political, and economic upheaval. That’s why the next installment of the Art in Architecture Continuing Education webinar series, “Four French Architects You Should Know – Eiffel, Prouvé, Perrault, and Ricciotti,” explores not only on these designers’ works, but also how the world around them influenced their most iconic structures. Cultural roots, the works of their predecessors, emerging technologies, and social challenges all impact the structures that Eiffel, Prouvé, Perrault, and Ricciotti have designed, shaping the France that we know today.
