About this Item

2304 pages. New Books. Boxed set of 47 books. ARCHITECTURE. The Italian architect and theorist Aldo Rossi (1931-97) gained international renown for imaginative and starkly beautiful designs featuring simple forms such as cones, cylinders, prisms, and cubes. Among his most famous projects are the cemetery of San Cataldo in Modena; the Gallaratese residential complex in Milan; the Hotel Il Palazzo in Fukuoka, Japan; and Il Teatro del Mondo, a temporary floating theater created in 1979 for the Venice Bienniale. His L'architettura della citt‡ (The Architecture of the City), published in 1966, is a classic in the field of urban design. In 1990 Rossi was awarded the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honor. This limited-edition boxed set makes available for the first time Rossi's notebooks, in facsimile, for the years 1968 to 1992, including the thirty-two held by the Getty Research Institute. The pages of these small notebooks are filled with Rossi's thoughts on architectural theory and history, his musings on progress, cities, and museums, and the impressions he recorded during his extensive travels. Handwritten in Italian and illustrated with Rossi's superb pastel and watercolor sketches, these literate and visually stunning notebooks display the genius of an architect and theorist who was at heart a poet of the visible. "Leafing through these notebooks makes for a fascinating journey with Rossi as he traveled the world." - Architectural Record (Key Words: Aldo Rossi, Architecture, Italian Language, Italiano, Italian Architects, I Quaderni azzurri, Limited Editions).
