Short of the Week: Jean Nouvel: Reflections

By Dana Murray

Sometimes it’s hard to look at breathtaking architecture and believe it’s actually the work of man. But Jean Novel: Reflections is a reminder that even the most exquisite buildings originate from lines on a sketchpad. It traces stunning structures back to a single mind, showing us that while the capability of their creation does in fact lie within the human brain, their materialization still feels miraculous.

Jean Novel: Reflections is a testament to the intricate art of architecture. Showcasing Nouvel’s “ability to be bold and delicate at the same time,” this documentary-short is proof that every detail of his work holds energy and intentionality.
