GIUSEPPE TERRAGNI TRANSFORMATIONS DECOMPOSITIONS CRITIQUES PDF

This far-reaching study — illustrated with more than five hundred original architectural diagrams and archival photographs — employs what Eisenman calls critical and textual reading of both buildings. He attempts to broaden the definition of the formal from a narrow aesthetic and compositional view to include first the conceptual and then the textual. It is through this idea of the textual that Eisenman begins to define an idea of the critical in architecture. Instead, the various articulations and openings on the facades constitute a set of marks, notations that provide the basis for his analysis.

Biography[ edit ] Giuseppe Terragni was born to a prominent family in Meda , Lombardy. In he and his brother Attilio opened an office in Como. A pioneer of the modern movement in Italy , Terragni produced some of its most significant buildings. A founding member of the fascist Gruppo 7 and a leading Italian Rationalist, Terragni fought to move architecture away from neo-classical and neo-baroque revivalism.

In he and other progressive members of Gruppo 7 issued the manifesto that made them the leaders in the fight against revivalism. In a career that lasted only 13 years, Terragni created a small but remarkable group of designs; most of them were built in Como, which was one of the centers of the Modern Movement in Italy.

These works form the nucleus of the language of Italian rationalist or modernistic architecture. Terragni was also one of the leaders of the artistic group called "astrattisti comaschi" with Mario Radice and Manlio Rho , one of the most important events in Italian Modern Art. He also contributed to the Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution. In his last designs, Terragni achieved a more distinctive Mediterranean character through the fusion of modern theory and tradition. After the Italians collapsed near Stalingrad , Terragni produced drawings of the suffering around him and suffered a nervous breakdown.

Giuseppe Terragni

This far-reaching study -- illustrated with more than five hundred original architectural diagrams and archival photographs -- employs what Eisenman calls critical and textual reading of both buildings. He attempts to broaden the definition of the formal from a narrow aesthetic and compositional view to include first the conceptual and then the textual. It is through this idea of the textual that Eisenman begins to define an idea of the critical in architecture. Instead, the various articulations and openings on the facades constitute a set of marks, notations that provide the basis for his analysis. In the Casa del Fascio, for example, each of the four sequential design schemes records the previous state, encoding the process of transformation in the final building. In the Casa Giuliani-Frigerio it is instead the process of decomposition that generates the facades. Also included in the book are an essay by Terragni and a critique by Manfredo Tafuri.
