The book deals with the troubled  issue of the relation between legislation and the protection of twentieth-century architecture through a constructive dialogue between the competencies of specialists in various fields: architects, curators, lawyers and security experts. The questions raised by the topic are analysed in theoretical terms but also in their immediate operative relevance, through a discussion of the principles underlying the principles subtending the regulations in force in various sectors.

Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979), last century’s most famous Italian engineer, devised many of his architectural works by using sophisticated scale models which provided a preview of their stability. The result of elevated scientific knowledge and craft skills, these models accurately reflect Nervi’s ideas, always convinced of the necessary synthesis between engineering and architecture, science and art. The book is the result of lengthy historical archival research, enriched by a very full iconographic apparatus that reveals the exceptional nature of these “miniature masterpieces”.

Giulio Minoletti (1910-1981) graduated in architecture in 1931, when he was just 21 years old, after experiences that included working as an illustrator and fashion designer during his university studies. At the Politecnico di Milano he completed a training with a traditionalist matrix, but at the same time observed with interest the work of Le Corbusier and Gropius, showing himself a firm supporter of modernity. His long professional career spanned two successful seasons, the thirties and the period of reconstruction, and was characterized by an unusual versatility of interests: he was represented at all the editions of the Milan Triennial 1930-1957, an assistant at the School of Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano 1930-1949 and active in the architectural debate in Milan. Minoletti’s work covered the whole scale, ranging from the design of the city to that of the object, with an ease that was the sign of a “wholly Italian versatility”, as Gio Ponti observed.

Giulio Minoletti’s professional archive, of which this volume presents the analytical inventory, is preserved in the Archivio del Moderno in Mendrisio.

Giulio Minoletti (1910-1981), a Milanese architect, was notable for his remarkable versatility, his flair for experimental research into forms, materials, polychromes and hybrids between artistic genres that characterized his work as architect, builder and designer of housing estates, green areas, swimming pools and objects. This publication brings together the work of analysis of Minoletti’s works conducted by the students of the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture during the spring semester of 2013, in collaboration with the Archivio del Moderno in Mendrisio, which preserves Minoletti’s archives. The complexity and variety of his output is firstly placed in its Italian and international setting in a timeline that opens the publication, and then illustrated through a broad collection of projects. An initial essay, a brief biography and a portfolio of recent photographs complete the volume.

This first “Quaderno” from the BSc course in “Construction Systems and Processes” is devoted to a building by Rino Tami from the fifties, the Avegno Depot of the Maggia S.A. Hydroelectric Workshops. The second year students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, guided by professor Franz Graf, carried out practical work on the Depot articulated in the collection and analysis of original documentation, the redrafting of the building plans and the production of axonometric projections and constructional models made to scale. A selection of the material collected for the course, with the original drawings and period photographs, together with a historical reading of the building, a structural analysis and a selection of students’ works make up this issue, which is intended not only to demonstrate the presence in Ticino of a notable architectural work, but also to furnish the operators responsible for its conservation with pointers about appropriate ways of carrying out maintenance or restoration work.

«I’m gazing at photos of construction work. It is a fund acquired by the Academy of Mendrisio, representing the construction of Linea 1 of the Milan subway. Photographs with no artistic purpose, a pure record of the facts. No literature, no flights of fancy or female distractions, pure factual concreteness. Photos by engineers. Yet so beautiful, so full of stories.»

This collection of essays traces a promenade, discontinuous and multi-directional, amid the themes, interests, curiosities and concerns that marked the creation and guided the design path of some of the works of Le Corbusier, beginning with his research in the thirties into the «elegant solution», the form of a “reticent” structure or fluid internal spatial qualities, and down to the development in the sixties of original, proliferating, «open building» compositions, above all in the trend towards receptiveness to multiple interpretations that the observer feels authorized to make on the basis of his culture.

Bruno Reichlin (Lucerne, 1941), an architect with a professional activity in restoration, was a professor at the Institut d’Architecture of the University of Geneva until 2006 and a professor at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture until 2011. He has curated exhibitions and written essays on Alberto Sartoris, Robert Mallet Stevens, Max Bill, Frederick Kiesler, Oswald Haerdtl, Asnago and Vender, Mies van der Rohe, Carl Weidemeyer, Philip Johnson, Carlo Scarpa.

Increasingly, and today even urgently, architecture needs to be understood as an interdisciplinary culture that deals with the organization of the living space, because the world beyond it is inevitably dominated by individual branches of knowledge, whether technical, engineering, scientific, organizational and even aesthetic. And if the logic of specialized spheres of competence gains the upper hand, these fields of knowledge will be transformed from indispensable contributions into precepts that reduce the project to a collage of solutions, with overall results that will be dismal. To prevent architecture from ending up relegated to the destiny of a technical service or mere aesthetic entertainment, it is essential to continuously rethink the design process in ways that will reinforce the figure of a total operator.

This slender volume contains five studies devoted to one of the most famous Italian architects, Marco Zanuso (1916-2001), a true pioneer of design in Milan in the second half of the last century. His achievement, interpreted principally in relation to clients and the industry that endorsed his forward-looking insights and favoured the creation of cutting-edge projects, is investigated in the essays all accompanied by a refined series of illustrations.

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.

The volume is accompanied by illustrations of Zanuso’s works and projects, from the architect’s rich photographic collection.

Foreword by Bruno Reichlin, introductory essay by Roberta Grignolo.

This volume brings together contributions from some of the leading scholars and designers on the protection of interior space, which in the work on the architectural heritage of the twentieth century is often overshadowed by the outer shell. The various issues raised by the topic are analysed from the theoretical and thematic viewpoints, as well as in immediately functional terms through discussions of operations already completed.

Texts in Italian, English, French or German by Cecile Briolle, Andrea Canziani, Dorothea Deschermeier, Fernando Fiorino, Hartmut Frank, Emilia Garda, Michel Goutal, Roberta Grignolo, Justin Gunther, Jean-Baptiste Minnaert, Joris Molenaar, Marco Pogacnik, Bruno Reichlin, Jacques Repiquet, Giorgio Rigone, Arthur Ruegg, Paola Scaramuzza, Lynda S.

This dense work, containing a wealth of previously unpublished data and images, explores certain aspects of the architecture of the 1920s and 30s in relation to concepts of nationalism and internationalism in the political context of Switzerland. It does not aim to study either nationalism or internationalism in themselves, nor the dialectical and political conflicts between them, seeking only to provide a survey of certain situations in which architects openly appealed to either of these outlooks.

"Microcosmi" documents the didactic activity of Valentin Bearth’s Design Studio at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture between 2004 and 2012. It describes the methodology and the premises of the course within the context of the school and presents a selection of student projects. The didactic report is completed by the transcription of a lecture by Aurelio Galfetti, where the parallel presentation of two built projects, the Rotalinti House in Bellinzona and his house on the island of Paros, offers a significant contribution on the theme of inhabitation.
