About Change this

Bernard Huet is a French architect and town planner (14 January 1932, Quinhon in French Indochina (now in Vietnam ) - 9 September 2001, Paris). After studying architecture at the National School of Fine Arts, he graduated as a DPLG architect in 1962. He continued his studies at the Politecnico di Milano and then at University of Pennsylvania, where he obtained a Master of Architecture in 1964 from Louis Kahn.

On his return to France in 1968, he founded Unit 8 (UP8), where he taught until his retirement in 1998. He advocates a "return to the historic city" as opposed to the "functional city" of the modern movement. He was editor-in-chief of the magazine L'Architecture d'aujourd'hui from 1974 to 1977.
