Patrick Berger (Paris, 10 November 1947) has received the national prize for architecture and is an honorary professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). He obtained his diploma in architecture at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1972.
His practice as an architect begins with an internship in Warmbronn, in the studio of Frei Otto. After a scientific mission for UNESCO in Nepal, he wrote his doctorate in urban planning in 1977 on the formation of the royal new city of Panauti. In the 1980s, he continued his research on architecture as a constructed sign, its character and its effects in the public space or in natural sites. It was also during this period that he is conducting a study on the rehabilitation of the area of the cemetery of Pere Lachaise.
