About this product
- DescriptionThe architecture of Paolo Portoghesi is careful to the diversity of sites, sensitive to the needs and desires of those who live with it, and always thick with references to tradition and the various fields of artistic expression and kwledge. Paolo Portoghesi is an architect and professor of Urban Planning at the University of Rome, La Sapienza . He is author of numerous publications on Renaissance and Baroque Architecture and Art Nouveau, and on the problems of modern architecture.This book shows how he has taken up the challenge posed by the question of how man and the city relate and how he has raised the ethical legacy of modern architecture by envisioning a future that can oppose the wave of consumerism and social competition. Portoghesi firmly believes in the new wave of Geo-architecture: an architecture that takes on the responsibility to help human society to forge a new alliance with nature.
