[Renzo Piano. Projects and architecture 1987-1994] This is the third volume on Renzo Piano in the “Architectural Documents” series, covering his activity from 1987 to 1994. In this period certain works discussed in the development stage in the previous volumes were completed, and are therefore also included here; other projects were begun. Many others were seen from start to finish, confirmation of the fact that this period coincides with one of the most productive phases of the career of the Genoese architect. The items in the listing of works are many, demonstrating the professional maturity achieved by Renzo Piano, who directs a structure that is a major presence on the international scene. Alongside famous works like the De Menil Museum in Houston, the San Nicola stadium in Bari, the headquarters of Ircam in Paris, the renewal project for the Genoa waterfront commissioned for the Columbian Expo in 1992, the book contains documentation on more recent constructions such as the airport of Osaka and the project for the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, or those for a number of Italian railway stations. One section of the volume is devoted to the many exhibitions and the most significant installations designed by Piano, while the last part features a conversation between the Genoese architect and Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani.
