One of the most unique protagonists of contemporary architecture: from the houses in Canton Ticino to the international spotlight.
Architecture 1960-1985] Already renowned early in his career, in the 1960s, thanks to works that paid close attention to the finest traditions of modern architecture, Botta has constructed a vast number of projects, gradually achieving international acclaim.
An acute heir to the lesson of Le Corbusier, he has also drawn significant impulses from the work of Kahn and Scarpa, demonstrating great creativity, from the well-known single-family houses in Canton Ticino to international projects on a larger scale.
In this way Botta’s name has become associated with a style that makes his work completely original with respect to the contradictory panorama of design experiences of the period 1975-85.
This book systematically reviews 25 years of work by one of the outstanding protagonists of contemporary architecture. It is an indispensable tool for all those who want to study the work of this great Swiss master.
