Gianni Pettena - Absolutely Everything… or Almost
|Author||P. Brugellis; A. Salvadori; E. Trincherini eds.|
Gianni Pettena was a founding member of the Radical architecture movement in the late 1960s, which included names like Archizoom, Remo Buti, 9999, UFO, Superstudio, and Zziggurat. Besides critiquing modernist functionalism, the self-proclaimed “anarchitect” became noted for a purposeful reluctance to actually design. The uniqueness of Pettena’s prolific career is informed by his rejection of discipline-based roles or methodologies, creating temporary works while constantly seeking alliances with radical design in other countries, as well as conceptual art, Land Art, and experimental music. This book covers almost all of his works, supported by an extensive anthology of his writings.
