SAN ROCCO No. 14: 66
by SAN ROCCO€18.00
1966 was a promising year. Aldo Rossi published "The Architecture of the City" and Robert Venturi came out with "Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture". The stage seemed set for a productive critique of modernism and the development of a more mature approach to the intricacies of architecture. Architecture seemed on the verge of rediscovering its collective nature and about to redefine its knowledge by starting from the city.
