Rupture & Imbernon

By 25 May 2020April 12th, 2024No Comments

Since 2019, Architecture de Collection has been a partner of the Rupture & Imbernon bookshop – formerly the Imbernon bookshop and publishing house – located on the third floor of Marseille’s mythical Cité radieuse.

Since February 2022, the bookshop has been managed by Alexandre Sap, creator of Rupture, an international network of cultural venues that looks to the East, following the silk road punctuated by counters of cultural and philosophical exchange.

Opened in 2002, the bookshop has established itself as a point of reference for modern architecture and urban planning in France, serving a varied public ranging from professionals and researchers to art lovers. It assumes a precise and precious selection. Always specialized in the work of Le Corbusier, architecture, urban planning and the arts of the 20th and 21st centuries, it also combines new and rediscovered works, fine books and fine art in a singular, unexpected and refined setting designed by Pierre Gonalons.

In 2001, Katia Imbernon and Jean-Lucien Bonillo founded Editions Imbernon, specializing in the history of 20th-century architecture and urban planning, with a first book devoted to Fernand Pouillon, the Mediterranean architect who, among other things, rebuilt Marseille’s Old Port. The company has published over twenty works on Le Corbusier, Claude Parent and modern urban planning in the South of France.

Then, in 2002, they founded the bookshop, which has since established itself as a reference point for modern architecture and urban planning in France, aimed at a varied public ranging from professionals and researchers to art lovers. Its selection is both precise and valuable. Currently still specializing in the work of Le Corbusier, architecture, urban planning and the arts of the 20th and 21st centuries, it also combines new and rediscovered works, fine books and fine art in a singular, unexpected and refined setting designed by Pierre Gonalons.
