Renzo Piano Building Workshop: complete works
This is the third volume of the series of monographs on the Italian architect Renzo Piano. One of the most acclaimed designers of his generation, Piano first gained his international reputation through his collaboration with Richard Rogers and Peter Rice on the Centre Pompidou in Paris. He has since completed projects as diverse as the gallery for the De Menil Collection in the USA, the Bari Sports Stadium and the Columbus International Exposition in Italy. The publication of this book marks a watershed in Piano's career. In 1995 the Building Workshop completed Kansai Airport in Japan, which is Piano's largest work to date. The airport is thoroughly documented from its initial design through to its construction, and is then experienced as a finished building. Other ongoing and completed projects are also included, such as the Lingotto Factory Renovation in Turin, the Cite Internationale in Lyons, the Cy Twombly Pavilion in Houston, Texas, the Rome Auditoria, the Saitama Arena in Japan, L'Ile Seguin and Le Grand Stade in Paris.
