Mario Campi, Karin Möllfors
Birkhäuser, 2002 - Architecture - 209 pages
After graduating from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), Mario Campi opened his own architecture office in Lugano in 1962. From 1977 to 1984, he was heavily involved with teaching activities at several American universities including Cornell and Harvard, then after returning to Z rich he became Professor for Architecture at the ETH Zurich in 1985. Campi's buildings are stark in form and elegantly composed, characterised by their concentration on the structural essentials, devoid of superfluity. Although his buildings are functional and very much of today, they also evoke a sense of serenity reminiscent of classical architecture. In this respect Campi is one of the major exponents of Italian rationalism. This monograph presents Campi's recent buildings and projects, highlighting his analytical approach. The projects featured include residential buildings in Lugano and the recently completed buildings for the chemistry faculty at the ETH Zurich.
