A Scientific Autobiography Paperback / softback
by Aldo Rossi
Part of the Oppositions Books series
A lyrical memoir by one of the major figures of postmodernist architecture; with drawings of architectural projects prepared especially for the book. This revealing memoir by Aldo Rossi (1937-1997), one of the most visible and controversial figures ever on the international architecture scene, intermingles discussions of Rossi's architectural projects-including the major literary and artistic influences on his work-with his personal history.
Drawn from notebooks Rossi kept beginning in 1971, these ruminations and reflections range from his obsession with theater to his concept of architecture as ritual.
