National Grand Prix of Architecture

The French Ministry of Culture has awarded the 2018 National Grand Prix of Architecture to French architect Pierre-Louis Faloci. Created in 1975, this prize, which rewards an architect or an architectural firm its entire body of work, represents the highest national distinction in this field. The jury commended Faloci’s career and projects noting the esthetic quality of his architectural works and his commitment to social and environmental issues.


Pierre-Louis Faloci, winner of the 1996 Prix de l'Équerre d'argent for the Museum of Celtic civilisation in Mont-Beuvray (Nièvre), is also known for the renovation  of the Musée Rodin in Paris, the Battle of Valmy Museum in Valmy and the World War I Museum in Lens. He is also a professor and teaches in several schools of architecture.
