The architecture of the city by Aldo Rossi( Book )

182 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage de l'architecte italien est fondamental à bien des égards. D'une part, il marque une étape essentielle dans l'histoire théorique de l'urbanisme, et d'autre part il s'inscrit dans le mouvement italien néorationaliste de la Tendenza initié dans les années 70
Aldo Rossi : drawings and paintings by Morris Adjmi( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Rossi is admired as much for his artistic ability as for his architectural design skill. His drawings, paintings, and renderings have been exhibited in museums and galleries from New York to Moscow, and formed the basis of a 1991 retrospective at the Pompidou Center in Paris. This elegant book collects over 200 color reproductions and 200 black and white reproductions of his drawings and paintings together in a companion volume to Aldo Rossi: Architecture "1981-1991". An introduction by the editors explores the themes common to Rossi's architectural and drawn oeuvre, and an essay by critic and art historian Carter Ratcliff situates Rossi's graphic work in the context of contemporary art. Together the text and plates offer an insight into the creative mind of one of the most important architects in practice today."--Publisher description
Aldo Rossi, the sketchbooks 1990-1997 by Aldo Rossi( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Rossi, one of the most innovative minds of modern architecture, was born in Milan in 1931. He lived and worked in Milan and New York, building in Germany, Holland, France, the USA and Japan, and teaching at a number of universities including Yale and Harvard. He died in 1997 at the age of sixty-six." "Rossi is important not only for his buildings but perhaps even more for his ideas. His free use of historical styles, especially classical, places him broadly as a Postmodernist. But he was much more than that. Every project was carefully conceived in relation to a particular purpose and a particular context, priorities that come through most clearly in these irresistable colour drawings, reproduced here for the first time."--Jacket
Le vite de' piú eccellenti architetti, pittori, et scultori italiani : da Cimabue insino a' tempi nostri : nell edizione per i tipi di Lorenzo Torrentino, Firenze 1550 by Giorgio Vasari( Book )

34 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in Italian and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pubblicate dapprima nel 1550, esse sono frutto di un lavoro di paziente ricerca durato almeno dieci anni. Il Vasari aveva infatti iniziato a raccogliere materiali, appunti e notizie riguardanti la vita e l'attività degli artisti italiani già nel 1540, quando aveva trent'anni. Iniziando da Cimabue, il Vasari racconta, analizza, commenta la vita e l'opera degli artisti italiani vissuti nell'arco di tre secoli, per giungere fino ai suoi contemporanei, senza tralasciare nessuno: dai più celebri, come Raffaello e Michelangelo, a quelli che solo pochi conoscono
Sottsass by Ettore Sottsass( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take a glimpse inside the archive of the founder of the Memphis Group and designer of the Olivetti Valentine typewriter in Ettore Sottsass, a lavishly illustrated monograph chronicling the life and works of the unparalleled Italian designer and architect. A gorgeous object in itself, the unique design of the book allows it to either be read cover-to-cover as a narrative history, or by discipline, picking up the relative thread under each period, with multi-colored tabs to distinguish each sub-chapter. Packed with 800 beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives - many of which have never been published before - and including drawings and sketches from the designer's countless sketchbooks, the book also includes four short essays from experts in their fields, including Deyan Sudjic, director of London's Design Museum
