Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon are widely considered to be one of the most prolific and distinguished architecture teams working today. Based in Italy, they continue to build architecture and exhibit their work around the world, as well as teach and lecture in many of the top architecture schools. Their signature aesthetic is created by their sensitivity to urban design themes, by attempting to place architectonic form in a specific dialogue with the context.
Their award-winning work has appeared in numerous publications, magazines, and journals over the past two decades, and collected here for the first time ever -- in one single volume -- are forty-five projects, spanning fifteen years of collaboration. Their extensive oeuvre includes projects for the Italian Embassy in Washington, D.C., the Banca di Roma's Manhattan Headquarters, Taichung Civic Center in Taiwan, the Opera House in Cardiff, the Bulgari Stores in New York City and Tokyo, Gescal Public Housing in Milan, the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T) and the Italian Trade Center in New York City, among others.
This monograph -- a dialogue between architectural criticism and built form -- presents their work with a selected group of thirty-five intriguing essays and fascinating interviews, written by such noted authors and critics as Paul Goldberger, Kenneth Frampton, Rudolf Arnheim, C. Ray Smith, Bruno Zevi, Robert Maxwell, Susan Doubilet, Richard Reid, and Benjamin Forgey, on each individual project. The "chronology" starts with the most recent project, then proceeds backward to enlighten the reader on the genesis of the emblematic architectural vocabulary of Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon.
