An opera omnia - with a fine selection of photographs and original drawings - on the "master" and the lesson his career has transmitted to subsequent generations of architects.
[Aldo Rossi. All the works] A precious volume covering the intense activity of Aldo Rossi, the lesson of “a few deep things” his career has transmitted to subsequent generations of architects. A clear supporter of the independence of architectural practice, Rossi never overlooked the ethical side of the profession, even in the face of the unavoidable destiny of the contemporary world. His constructed works, his projects and drawings – many of which are published in this book – express more than words the detached pursuit of an extreme, truthful meaning in art: “the rest is vanity”. The volume, thanks to the wealth of iconographic materials documenting the architect’s entire career, and the critical depth of the texts, is an indispensable tool for an understanding of the complex thought of an architect-intellectual who can only be defined as a “master”.
