A brilliant spirit, Paul was an engineer, architect, painter, and writer who never ceased to amaze us his creations, for which he strived to harmoniously balance beauty and usefulness .
Interested by the lightness of the structures and their transparency, he became an early reference in airport architecture before completing his rich international career in China where the realization of major cultural facilities gave him an extraordinary reputation across the country.
