Aldo Rossi is one of the acknowledged masters of architecture of the second half of the 20th century; the interest in his work has remained constant since the 1960s, as is demonstrated by the events organised recently for the 20th anniversary of his death. The three essays gathered together in this small volume present a different view of the Italian architect and make a highly valuable contribution to the copious amounts of literature already available on his work.

The World as Design

Otl Aicher's writings are explorations of the world, a substantive part of his work. In moving through the history of thought and design, building and construction, he assures us of the possibilities of arranging existence in a humane fashion. As ever he is concerned with the question of the conditions needed to produce a civilised culture. These conditions have to be fought for against apparent factual or material constraints and spiritual and intellectual substitutes on offer. Otl Aicher likes a dispute. For this reason, the volume contains polemical statements on cultural and political subjects as well as practical reports and historical exposition. He fights with productive obstinacy, above all for the renewal of Modernism, which he claims has largely exhausted itself in aesthetic visions; he insists the ordinary working day is still more important than the "cultural Sunday".

Sofas with the names of cities. Chairs with the names of countries. Lamps with the names of islands. Tables that recall architectural styles. Household appliances that allude to morphological land elements. The Italian design objects gathered together in this book give new shape to the places and forms of the Earth, representing them within the walls of the home, bringing the four corners of the earth into the confines of the domestic living room and kitchen. The world comes home via Aldo Rossi's Elba cabinet, Massimo Morozzi's Babel bookcase, Mario Cananzi's Tatlin sofa, Nanda Vigo's Manhattan lamp, Gianfranco Frattini's Kyoto coffee table, Ettore Sottsass's Boston cocktail shaker and Casablanca shelving unit, Gaetano Pesce's Broadway chair, and Angelo Mangiarotti's Lesbo lamp. As a family, these design objects implement a reversal and a balance of scale between large and small, internal and external, function and representation. Through a precise strategy of naming, they dispose the world to fit in a room, without, magically, in anyway diminishing it.

A World History of Architecture

The Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius declared firmitas, utilitas, and venustas-firmness, commodity, and delight- to be the three essential attributes of architecture. These qualities are brilliantly explored in this book, which uniquely comprises both a detailed survey of Western architecture, including Pre-Columbian America, and an introduction to architecture from the Middle East, India, Russia, China, and Japan. The text encourages readers to examine closely the pragmatic, innovative, and aesthetic attributes of buildings, and to imagine how these would have been praised or criticized by contemporary observers. Artistic, economic, environmental, political, social, and technological contexts are discussed so as to determine the extent to which buildings met the needs of clients, society at large, and future generations.

Melancholy and Architecture

Aldo Rossi (1931 97) is a key figure in 20th-century architecture. Often described as melancholic, his work was and still is influential both in architectural theory and practice. This new book discusses this notion of melancholy and its role on the example of Rossi. Drawing on rich archival sources, the author investigates several aspects of the Italian architect s figure and analyzes one of his landmark works, the Cemetery of San Cataldo in Modena, Italy. He also looks at the current issues of stardom, overexposure, and commercialization which Rossi anticipated, debating them in relation to melancholy. The history of melancholy as a companion to culture tells equally of affliction and an inspiration. Its meaning has always oscillated between medical statement and a mark of dignity. Subject and object, the individual and the collective have surrendered to the condition s allurement. While the influence of melancholy on visual arts and literature has been extensively debated, its presence in architecture has been overlooked so far. Yet artist and poets, such as Albrecht Durer (1471 1528) or Charles Baudelaire (1821 67), have related melancholy to questions of space, city, and modernity. Also, architects like Etienne-Louis Boullee (1728 99) or Adolf Loos (1870 1933) noted sentiments of gloom or crisis in their writings. Likewise, Aldo Rossi can be discussed from a similar standpoint. Amidst great social changes after WW II, he disputed the modernists credos and questioned the status of his profession. Discarding utopian pretences, his work claimed the autonomy of architecture with formal restraint. These positions and his understanding of terms like fragment and memory imply melancholy. His buildings, drawings, and writings oscillate between enthusiasm and disenchantment. The Cemetery of San Cataldo (1971 84) is an example of the latter. Closely intertwined with Rossi s biography, its stark and monumental buildings reinterpret a typology from the past to come to terms with the representations of death and its inevitable melancholy.

Aldo Rossi, a practicing architect and leader of the Italian architectural movement La Tendenza, is also one of the most influential theorists writing today. The Architecture of the City is his major work of architectural and urban theory. In part a protest against functionalism and the Modern Movement, in part an attempt to restore the craft of architecture to its position as the only valid object of architectural study, and in part an analysis of the rules and forms of the city's construction, the book has become immensely popular among architects and design students.

As a city that seems to float between Europe and Asia, removed by a lagoon from the tempos of terra firma, Venice has long seduced the Western imagination. Since the 1797 fall of the Venetian Republic, fantasies about the sinking city have engendered an elaborate series of romantic clichés, provoking conflicting responses: some modern artists and intellectuals embrace the resistance to modernity manifest in Venice's labyrinthine premodern form and temporality, whereas others aspire to modernize by "killing the moonlight" of Venice, in the Futurists' notorious phrase. Spanning the history of literature, art, and architecture—from John Ruskin, Henry James, and Ezra Pound to Manfredo Tafuri, Italo Calvino, Jeanette Winterson, and Robert Coover—Killing the Moonlight tracks the pressures that modernity has placed on the legacy of romantic Venice, and the distinctive strains of aesthetic invention that resulted from the clash. In Venetian incarnations of modernism, the anachronistic urban fabric and vestigial sentiment that both the nation-state of Italy and the historical avant-garde would cast off become incompletely assimilated parts of the new. Killing the Moonlight brings Venice into the geography of modernity as a living city rather than a metaphor for death, and presents the archipelago as a crucible for those seeking to define and transgress the conceptual limits of modernism. In strategic detours from the capitals of modernity, the book redrafts the confines of modernist culture in both geographical and historical terms.
