Odile Decq is a French architect and urban planner. International renown came in 1990 with her first major commission: La Banque Populaire de l’Ouest in Rennes, France. Since then, she has been faithful to her fighting attitude while diversifying and radicalising her research. Being awarded The Golden Lion of Architecture during the Venice Biennale in 1996 acknowledged her early and unusual career. Other than just a style, an attitude or a process, Odile Decq’s work materialises a complete universe that embraces urban planning, architecture, design and art. Her multidisciplinary approach was recently recognised with the Jane Drew Prize in 2016, and this year she was honoured with Architizer’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Everyone is welcome to attend the lecture, which should prove stimulating for architects, planners, and others alike. Due to expected demand we would ask all to please order your free tickets via eventbrite.
