About this title


Winner of the 1990 Pritzker Architecture Prize, Aldo Rossi gained international recognition as a practicing architect, artist, and theorist. Rossis' projects in the decade 1981-1991 are collected in this award-winning book: it received an AIA International Book Award in 1992; and Honorable Mention for graphic design in ID magazine, and a Certificate of Merit from the Printing Industry of America.

Among the 61 works presented are Il Palazzo Hotel, Fukuoka, Japan; German History Museum, Berlin; San Carlo alla Barona Church, Milan; and Office Complex for Disney, Orlando. Karen Stein's descriptive texts and afterword are accompanied by introductions by Morris Adjmi and Diane Ghirardo and an essay by Aldo Rossi. Also included is a complete project chronology and bibliography.


Aldo Rossi: Architecture 1981-1991 is a vivid and timely survey of recent buildings, projects, and drawing--Rossi's way with pencil and paint is renowned--by the Italian theorist turned superstar. Rossi's work is distinguished by depth of feeling and stark simplicity, neither disallowing gaiety. -- Adele Freedman, Toronto Globe and Mail
