The founding father of contemporary architecture in Ticino, Rino Tami (1908-1994) designed, when still very young, the Lugano Canton Library (1936-1940), the first excellent example of a modern public building in Ticino. In the Forties, organic architecture became a part of his wide cultural heritage. His professional maturity, attained in the Fifties and Sixties with public buildings (headquarters of the Italian Swiss Radio in Lugano) and private houses (Torre House in Lugano, Nadig House in Maroggia), coincided with his teaching commitment at the Zürich Polytechnic. From the Sixties he also held the post of supervisor of the architectural features along the Ticinese stretch of the Swiss motorway: tunnel entrances, bridges, portals, viaducts, embankment walls, service area buildings, public conveniences, storehouses, air shafts.

The book shows the big steps that Chinese urbanism is taking today. Beijing and Shanghai represent modern developments: one is the political and cultural center of the nation, while the other is its economic hub. Nanjing is taken as a typical case of Chinese urbanism, with its long history, natural geography, political events, and economic development.

The book offers an overview of the transformations under way in Johannesburg and its metropolitan area, and a selection of the most interesting architectural and urban projects completed or under way in the last ten years. The common denominator of the best of these projects is twofold: firstly, they implement architectural and planning practices to overcome the social, political and cultural divisions of the past and to respond to the fluidity of the post apartheid landscape; secondly, they contribute to develop South Africa’s enormous economic potential and to make its principal cities international points of reference.

The work of Luciano Rigolini (Tesserete, 1950) is developed in a constant dialogue between photography and painting, an exchange of references through which to explore issues relating to the theory of vision or to clarify the status of photography in contemporary aesthetics. The book opens with an "Exercise in style": 70 snapshots of anonymous subjects, collected by the artist over a period of several years. In their reasoned and sensitive comparison, these images form a sort of visual vocabulary of Rigolini’s oeuvre. They are followed by photographs from the series "Urban landscapes" which, taken between 1990 and 2002, re-examine the urban landscape in a constructivist key.

The book presents a contemporary picture of the urban development models devised by the Modern Movement and a reflection on what they mean today. Chandigarh and Brasilia, newly founded cities built ex nihilo in 1950-1960, looked explicitly to the “functionalist” and “rationalist” traditions of modern town planning. Also, like some of the plans inspired by the neoclassical that were prepared in the early decades of the 20th century, especially for the building of government capitals or civic centres, they both sought to fulfil monumental ambitions to represent state institutions. The book examines the contemporary reality of Chandigarh and Brasilia through a grid of catchwords that sum up the distinctively modern terms in which the two projects are stated. Divided into two main categories, Urbanism and Architecture, the catchwords accompany the reader along a photographic sequence that helps to define an “official” idiom whereby architecture was expected to represent the “modernisation” of both countries.

The book features the illustrated catalogue raisonné of the collection, held in the Ticino, of drawings by the Gilardi architects.

The Gilardis were architects of Ticinese stock who worked in Russia during the first half of the nineteenth century. In particular, Domenico (1785-1845) made a number of masterly contributions to the reconstruction of Moscow after the fire of 1812.

The catalogue opens with two essays: by Piervaleriano Angelini on neoclassical architecture in Moscow and St Petersburg, and by Alessandra Pfister on the human background and critical fortunes of the Gilardis.

Arduino Cantàfora, the architect and painter who worked for a long time with Aldo Rossi, has been one of the outstanding personalities at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture. His courses represented a highly idiosyncratic attitude to the figure of the teacher, the maestro. Hence the title of the exhibition (Museo d’arte Mendrisio, 10 February 25 March 2007) and its catalogue. The sequence presented, in the exhibition and in the book, is spread over a selection of works by the artist, his assistant Annina Ruf, and students who have attended his ateliers at the Accademia. The event seeks to show how Cantàfora’s art is also an art of the paideia: educational in the formation of tools with which to understand and represent the world and its natural as well as architectural forms. Viewed together, the works of Cantàfora and of his pupils thus stimulate visitors and readers to explore one of the core issues of artistic cultures: the transmissibility of their knowledge.

Moscow is today a mighty laboratory for experimentation in social and economic policy and urban planning. As a free market forms and capitalism gathers pace, a new metropolis of a kind never seen before is being born. Following the history of utopian experiments and physical transformations of the city in the 20th century, we can distinguish at least three different and specific approaches to the formation of a model of New Moscow: in the urban experimental projects of the 1920s, and in the master plans of 1935 and 1971. The goal of "New Moscow 4" is to show the kind of transformations Moscow has experienced since the renunciation of socialism, to help identify the character of the city’s regeneration as it switches to a capitalist economy, and to outline prospects for the city’s further development.

The panorama of Mexican architecture at the beginning of this century is a variegated one, revealing the widest conceptual, stylistic and formal expressions and a happy mixture of the austere language of the Modern Movement, the lively idiom of the vernacular, and the legacy of Luis Barragán. This book illustrates the vibrant urban context of Mexico City in a selection of works by ten architects: the imposing embassy by Teodoro González de León, the metaphysical towers of Ricardo Legorreta, the buildings of Augustín Landa and Augusto Quijano, and the most recent accomplishments which are also so richly diverse in their aesthetic conception of Enrique Norten, Bernardo Gomez-Pimienta, Alberto Kalach, Javier Sánchez, Mauricio Rocha and Fernando Romero.

This album of drawings was originally a gift presented in 1795 by the architect Luigi Rusca to the nobleman Zampiero Grimani, Venetian Ambassador to the court of Catherine II. The precious book, presented here in a facsimile edition with an in-depth historical and critical apparatus, contains twenty plates. Mostly in Indian ink and water-colour, they depict some of the principal monuments and residences of St Petersburg: works by Rusca himself and by others such as the illustrious Jean-Baptiste Michel Vallin de la Mothe and Giacomo Quarenghi.

Structure is a fundamental aspect of construction. It concerns both engineers and architects who, however, often speak mutually incomprehensible languages. The purpose of this book is to foster dialogue between their two professions, so as to optimise their common work. Originating from the courses held at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, the book adopts a reader-friendly, lively and immediately understandable approach utilizing graphic visualisation.

The book is a collection of twelve essays on the history of medieval published since the 1960s in rare editions or in other forms by now hard to obtain. In describing them as «Fragments of life», the author refers not just to the time span they embrace, but also to a common critical purpose: never to lose sight of the concrete object of his work, albeit in a wide range of fields: from late classical to Byzantine, from the miniature to the “minor arts”. A return to these topics, selected by the author himself and in a number of cases revisited for the occasion, affords an opportunity to follow up a critical viewpoint in which rigorous scholarship, faithfulness to “text” and interpretative passion are combined in a uniquely idiosyncratic style.

The broadest and most closely examined survey of the Italian sources of Russian neoclassicism, a style which from the second half of the 18th century gave form and identity to St Petersburg, raising it to the level of a modern and “enlightened” European capital.

But it is a style that can also be retraced to Moscow and to the cities of southern Russia, where it serves to bring about architectural and town-planning renewal.

The work, resulting from collaboration between western and Russian scholars, offers an innovative (artistic but also social) picture of one of the most fruitful periods in Russian history, stretching from Catherine II’s accession to the throne in 1762 to the death of her grandson, Tsar Alexander I in 1825.

Collected into this book are the contributions by Carlo Cattaneo (1801-1869) to the debate on the building of the trans-Alpine railway, viewed by the author from the perspective of a system of communication between ever wider and more complex cultures, whose civilised values he believed were not inferior to their economic ones.

The wooden bridges of Wettingen, Reichenau and Sciaffusa, built by the brothers Johannes and Hans Ulrich Grubenmann, were in the second half of the 18th century much admired and studied by scholars, engineers and architects.

Among these was the British John Soane (1753-1837), who did drawings of them which emphasized their technological and structural aspect. He also made them the subject of some of his famous Lecturers at the Royal Academy in London.
