The Claude Parent Prize

Some have faith and the future in them.
But times are tough. Globalization and the appeal of large structures will make difficult, if not impossible, the sumptuous initiative of a few singular individuals who do not accept to fall under the yoke of standardization.
These are the ones I love, because they will suffer and perhaps perish. I have confidence in those who are the salt of architecture, who carry resolutely the reaction to the irreversible.
I wish them good luck.
I think they will survive despite politicians who are so "correct" in their idea of ​​our happiness."
