Mme. C.

This architectural book is made to honor Marie Curie, referred to at the time as Mme. Curie, the eminent female scientist who was the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize, in 1903. More so, she won a second Nobel in 1911, making her not only the first woman to ever have accomplished such a feat but also the only person ever to have received Nobel Prizes in two different scientific fields (physics and chemistry).

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

The ancient spiral structures of the ammonite and modern nautilus seemed a suitable form to carry her clear insight into the intertwined relationship of knowledge and fear. The Fibonacci whole number sequence of a spiral structure like that of the nautilus inspired also the Greek/renaissance principle of the "golden ratio" in western art.
