mostra Aldo Rossi: The Architecture and Art of the Analogous City a cura di Daniel Sherer
North Gallery | School of Architecture | Princeton NJ
«The show presents different phases of Rossi’s career chronologically and thematically, with an emphasis on the period from 1967 to 1990. The chronological part unfolds through a detailed presentation of his architectural projects in the School of Architecture’s North Gallery, highlighting well-known works such as Gallaratese (1967-74), the Modena Cemetery (1971-1984), and the Teatro del Mondo (1980) alongside lesser known projects such as the Villa in Borgo Ticino (1973) and the Casa dello Studente in Chieti (1977). The thematic areas of the exhibition center on Rossi’s relation to other protagonists of theory and practice, critical responses to his work as they unfold over time, and their institutional and cultural contexts. Taken together, these foci can help the viewer trace key moments in Rossi’s architectural production and important instances of its reception both in Italy and internationally, culminating with the Pritzker Prize in 1990».
