Vincen Cornu
In the Thick of Things

Vincen Cornu, a Paris-based architect, attempts to ‘translate’ architectural sensation into words and images, in order to convey the inspirations behind his work and the ways in which buildings, and the spaces they create, can offer journeys of imaginative discovery. He takes the reader back to early theories of architecture, through topics as diverse as skyscrapers, railway tracks, grain barns in northern Spain and the works of previous and contemporary architectural masters. The text works alongside numerous full-colour drawings and architectural plans by the author himself, creating a glimpse into how architecture is still meaningful to us in the present day.
