A unique visual and literary exploration of recent buildings by SCAU architecture, France’s leading architectural firm.

Paris-based SCAU Architecture (Search & Create Alternative Uses) has grown to be one of the premier architectural firms in the world, with landmark projects like the Stade de France, Paris; the Quai des Savoirs, Toulouse. 

Creatures of the City provides a stunning look back over four decades of the prestigious firm’s vast portfolio of work. French photographer Cyrille Weiner has created a 224 pages photo essay that focuses on fourteen of SCAU architecture’s key projects, showing them within the context of their surrounding urban setting and their reception by visitors, inhabitants, and passers-by. Weiner’s extensive imagery is complemented by a text by French novelist Aurélien Bellanger.
