This book will practically recap the complete graphic work by Aldo Rossi: over 300 prints.
The book will accompany a traveling exhibition having a first venue at Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht and then going to Berlin, Lausanne and Rome. Few architects were as intensely occupied with making architecture itself the subject as Aldo Rossi (1932-1997). Drawing was second nature to him, as shown by his unending stream of drawings, which were often very poetic, colourful and humorous, and always recognisable in a continual interplay of visual analogies.
The Bonnefantenmuseum is presenting a touring exhibition of the graphic oeuvre of architect Aldo Rossi, in collaboration with international partners like the Fondazione Aldo Rossi, The National Institute for Graphic Art in Rome and the Polytechnic.
Maastricht: Bonnefantenmuseum, 26/6/2015- 1/11/2015
