Dominique Perrault became world known for the design of the French National Library. In 2010 he was awarded the gold medal by the French Academy of Architecture for all his work. One of Dominique Perrault Architecture most recent achievements is the restructuring of La Poste du Louvre, originally designed by architect Julien Guadet and built between 1878 and 1888. Located in the Parisian ‘golden triangle’ in the first arrondissement, the building in typical Haussmannian style stands shoulder to shoulder with other historical gems that have recently undergone extensive refurbishment.
