Architect sues Paris over ‘unfinished’ Philharmonie

Jean Nouvel, creator of the city’s splendid new Philharmonie, has applied for a court order to have his name and imaged removed from any connection with the building.

His lawyers told a Paris court that he is not seeking damages, but he wants a further court order to ensure ‘modifying work’ is carried out at 26 locations that are ‘non-compliant’ with his original design.

Nouvel stayed away on opening night saying the building was unfinished.
