Guy Rottier

1922-2013, Né à Tandjong Morawa, Indonésie et défunt à Nice, France

French-Dutch architect Guy Rottier (Sumatra, 1922 – Nice, 2013) obtained his engineering degree in The Hague in 1946. Eight years later, he graduated from the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris (1952) as a disciple of Le Corbusier.

Throughout his career, Guy Rottier placed the encounter and collaboration between architects and artists at the heart of his approach. As a champion of free and joyful architecture, his creations broke away from conventional norms to question the relationship between urbanism and ecology. In 2021, the Frac Centre-Val de Loire dedicated an exhibition to his work.
