LIVES & LINES | BORDEAUX
by Olivier Morisse & Laetitia Modine
Bordeaux, “La perle d’Aquitaine” (The Pearl of Aquitaine), has an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble of the 18th century. But the world’s wine industry capital has a different and more contemporary side, too. From symmetric reflections to radial swirls, Bordeaux architecture reveals its modern spirit through geometric balance. Olivier Morisse & Laetitia Modine share their vision of the city.
