A Scientific Autobiography (Oppositions Books)

Aldo Rossi


This revealing memoir by means of Aldo Rossi (1937--1997), some of the most seen and arguable figures ever at the foreign structure scene, intermingles discussions of Rossi's architectural tasks -- together with the key literary and inventive affects on his paintings -- together with his own background. Drawn from notebooks Rossi saved starting in 1971, those ruminations and reflections diversity from his obsession with theater to his inspiration of structure as ritual. The booklet initially seemed as one of many landmark titles within the MIT Press's Oppositions Books sequence, yet has been out of print for a few years. This newly issued paperback reprint contains illustrations -- images, evocative photographs, and a collection of drawings of Rossi's significant architectural tasks ready rather for this ebook -- chosen by means of the writer himself to reinforce the text.
