A pioneer of modernist architecture, Giuseppe Terragni (1904-1943) produced
some of Italy's most significant 20th century buildings. Celebrating the
centenary of Terragni's birth, Terragni: Atlas presents a visual record of this
influential architect whose work is experiencing renewed international interest.
In a short and intense career, Terragni created a small but remarkable group
of designs that form the nucleus of the Italian Rationalist school of
architecture. Terragni: Atlas presents the architecture of Terragni through a
juxtaposition of archival images and contemporary photographs by Paolo Rosselli.
Daniel Libeskind's authoritative and original essay and Rosselli's
outstanding photography attest to the importance of Terragni's work and his
continued influence on modern architecture.
