2264. Centre National d'art et de culture Georges-Pompidou

Dear Louise,

"My level of French at the time was that of a schoolboy,
moreover, the level of a schoolboy who was always
clowning about at school. The person asked me if I
was Mr. Piano and on my confirmation of this fact,
announced that we were "lauréats". I replied that it
was obvious that we were architecture graduates,
otherwise it was evident that we couldn't practice
this profession. So the poor woman had to repeat to
me for several minutes that we were laureates, until
I finally understood that that meant we had won the
competition." (Renzo Piano)

Best regards,
