Abstract:

"The buildings of the acclaimed Swiss architect Mario Botta are characterized by their preference for clear architectural forms that juxtapose lightness and weight. This monograph examines recent examples of this theme and shows how the architect's choice of materials emphasizes craftsmanship and geometric order. Botta's finished buildings are presented alongside designs which have not been realized or are ongoing, demonstrating the extraordinary creative process of this modern visionary."--BOOK JACKET.
