Text by Florence Guionneau-Joie, Didier Arnaudet.
Over the past 25 years, the renowned Spanish Catalan artist and sculptor Jaume Plensa (born 1955) has established himself as one of the most ubiquitous exponents of public sculpture. À Bordeaux focuses on 11 monumental new sculptures by the artist installed in Bordeaux, France, seven of which have never before been reproduced. These include "Paula" (2013), a cast-iron sculpture standing over 23 feet tall, and "Marianna & Awilda" (2013), a work in stainless steel composed of figures seated facing one another in a dialogue. In addition to these and other new sculptures, this publication also includes celebrated works by Plensa in Millennium Park, Chicago; the Burj Khalifa, Dubai; the BBC Broadcasting Tower, London; Pearson International Airport, Toronto; Daikanyama, Tokyo; and Raoul Wallenberg Square, Stockholm, among many other sites worldwide.

The Crown Fountain
Published by Hatje Cantz.
Interview by Carsten Ahrens.
The Barcelona artist Jaume Plensa is best-known for his spectacular Crown Fountain in Millennium Park, Chicago. Constructed between 1999 and 2004 with support from the Crown Foundation, this work features water cascading down two monumental towers, as well as video and lighting effects. Alternating images recorded on video by Plensa show the faces of 1,000 Chicagoans from all segments of society. Every 12 minutes these faces transform into gargoyles reminiscent of traditional fountains. Plensa's Crown Fountain, which swiftly became a popular public attraction, is comprehensively presented in this monograph, along with an extensive chronology of his multi-faceted oeuvre.

Essay by Carsten Ahrens.
Along with his extensive activity as a sculptor over the past two decades, in which he uses materials such as glass and brick to create architectural spaces and other pieces both small and large, the Spanish artist Jaume Plensa has also been exploring art through writing and theory. This monograph includes both visual documentation and a large selection of his writings.
