Winner of the 1990 Pritzker Architecture Prize, Italian architect and theorist Aldo Rossi (1931-97) gained international renown for his imaginative and starkly beautiful designs. Rossi's writings, drawings, and buildings-notable for using such simple forms as cones, cylinders, prisms, and cubes-are at once bold yet ordinary, original without being novel, simple in appearance but sophisticated in content and meaning. With 262 photographs, sketches, drawings, watercolors, and collages-many filling the page and most in color-this book focuses on his drawings, which both informed his work and explained his concepts. It includes introductory essays, a biography, a chronology of Rossi's projects, and bibliography.
