About this title


Mario Botta -- The Complete Works is the only complete edition of Botta's creative work co-designed and authorized by the architect himself; it is now internationally recognized as the definitive work on Botta.

These volumes draw a complete picture of Mario Botta's creative work as an architect, furniture designer, and exhibition and stage designer. Volume highlights include the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, the cathedral in Evry, the mountain chuch on Monte Tamaro (Ticino), the bank at Aeschenplatz, and the recently opened Tinguely museum, both of which are located in Basel. The newest projects are also introduced, such as the municipal library in Dortmund and the synagogue in Tel Aviv.

From Publishers Weekly:

Italian architect Mario Botta's serene geometric designs combine the architectonic precision of Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, the organicism of Frank Lloyd Wright and Romanesque architecture's sense of perpetuity and respect for the spirit of place. Proceeding from a 1961 vernacular stone parish house in Ticino, Switzerland, to an elaborate, unrealized 1985 design for housing on an island in Venice, this systematic survey of Botta's works--villas, schools, churches, banks, cultural centers, etc.--includes more than 600 photos and drawings, as well as a biographical profile. Pizzi, a Milanese professor and architect, charts the development of an empirical thinker with a vein of idealism, who has restored the arch and the column to a noble position in the repertoire of modern architecture.
