In 1966, Aldo Rossi published a book that refuted the then current arguments on the city and its design, and whose reception exceeded all expectations: L’architettura della città was fast internationally hailed as a classic. Now, on the 50th anniversary of the original launch of the book, this exhibition presents itself as a formal exercise both in celebrating this ‘mythical’ work and taking it off its pedestal, dusting it down so as to be able to (re-)engage with its tenets.
Curated by Victoria Easton, Kersten Geers and Guido Tesio in collaboration with Form - ENAC – EPFL and Fondazione Aldo Rossi.
