Quarantotto pagine: Jan De Vylder

«One moment is not like another. To wait for the right moment. Or to see the right moment. First this one. Patience. And then the next. Ready to see it. This moment, that is what it is about. This moment, which could be a definition. One of the definitions. Of architecture. On architecture. The moment when things that are seemingly unrelated suddenly and immediately seem to really relate to each other» (Jan De Vylder).

Marco Zanuso, Scritti sulle tecniche di produzione e di progetto

This volume brings together for the first time a selection of the writings of the Milanese architect and designer Marco Zanuso (1916-2001). Chosen from articles, conference papers, lectures and public meetings, they include a number that are unpublished. The choice of texts seeks to represent the breadth of Zanuso’s interests, ranging from new techniques of mass production to the relations between art and architecture, the role of technology in design and management methods in the design process, and his contribution to the contemporary architectural debate.
