Luigi Moretti: Works and Writings
Princeton Architectural Press, 2002 - Architecture - 229 pages
DESCRIPTION: Luigi Moretti is the first English-language monograph on the Italian architect (1907-1973) whose monumental works include the urban plan of the Foro Italico, the Piazza Imperiale, and Palazzo Civilta Italiana, all in Rome, and his renowned entry for the E.U.R. competition of 1937. His post-World War II works include Casa Girasole in Rome, the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C., and, with Pier Luigi Nervi, the Stock Exchange Tower in Montreal. In addition to his buildings, Moretti created an important body of theoretical works, published primarily in the journal Spazio, which he cofounded in 1950. Much adored by architects, Moretti's works have been largely overlooked by architectural historians. This beautifully illustrated book containing essays, projects, and an anthology of Moretti's own writings will introduce this important architect to the English-speaking world.
