Aldo Rossi, the sketchbooks 1990-1997 by Aldo Rossi( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Rossi, one of the most innovative minds of modern architecture, was born in Milan in 1931. He lived and worked in Milan and New York, building in Germany, Holland, France, the USA and Japan, and teaching at a number of universities including Yale and Harvard. He died in 1997 at the age of sixty-six." "Rossi is important not only for his buildings but perhaps even more for his ideas. His free use of historical styles, especially classical, places him broadly as a Postmodernist. But he was much more than that. Every project was carefully conceived in relation to a particular purpose and a particular context, priorities that come through most clearly in these irresistable colour drawings, reproduced here for the first time."--BOOK JACKET

The hand of Palladio by Paolo Portoghesi( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book identifies Palladio's personal touch, to pinpoint the most typical features of his language, his preferences, tics, obsessions, working method and the various stages of his training and creative career. The text traces Palladio's life story; the start of his career as a stone-cutter, then his works (the villas and palaces, the theatre and the churches), his building types and models, his studies on the architectural orders, the theme of the loggia and the role played by decoration, his passion for numbers and proportion, the connection between architecture and music, his capacity to think of a building in ideal terms, the technique of the intersection of spaces, stone and plastered brick (marmorino), the building site, defeats and his great (but late) success, and the myth created by a generation that had not personally known him
