Watch a fascinating survey of architect Jean Nouvel's famous projects

This behind-the-scenes look at architect Jean Nouvel's creative process and his philosophy behind some of his most iconic buildings is worth watching even if you're not an architecture buff.

Includes some sneak previews of The National Museum of Qatar, designed to look like the discs of the sun and moon intersecting with sand dunes.

As he says in the profile:

I fundamentally believe that a building is a reflection of an era. I really think one of the noble aspects of architecture is to testify for a generation, is to reflect a culture in a said instant.
