Yet there was not a book that in about 80 boards redesign planimetry, plant and building prospect, so as to capture both constructive details and housing solutions. This volume is the result of a research work that the authors conducted with a team from the Politecnico di Milano. Each building is accompanied by one or more photographs by Stefano Topuntoli taken for the occasion and from repertoire material.
The volume, introduced by Cino Zucchi – a well-known architect and scholar of Milanese architecture, is accompanied by two critical essays by the authors who place the Milanese era in the wider context of 20th-century architecture. A map locates buildings in the city context. A large bibliography by Maurizio Grandi completes the volume and, in appendix, the translation of the texts into English.”
