The definitive book on the work of the great master of rationalism.

This volume, on the influential rationalist Giuseppe Terragni, one of the most talented and original Italian architects, illustrates – with drawings, original photographs, preparatory sketches, models and documents – his activity in a complete, systematic way, reflecting the growing international attention his work has recently received. Starting with the experiences with Novecento painting, reflected in the sculptural, materic character of the Novocum residential complex in Como, the architect’s work coherently evolved toward an increasing level of abstraction and figurative composition in separable parts, as seen in the Casa del Fascio and above all in the Sant’Elia daycare center in Como, where the articulation of the plan and the breakdown of the volumes into lucid juxtaposed surfaces position the works within the sphere of the purest, most vibrant functionalist poetics.
