Ugo La Pietra - Living With Art

Publisher Corraini Edizioni

ISBN 9788875705466

Idea Code 16133

Schooled in the radical culture of the 1960s, Italian design virtuoso Ugo La Pietra has operated on the edge of the system from the ’70s onwards, inevitably from a transdisciplinary perspective. This exhaustive and richly illustrated manifesto presents 50 years of his life’s work and research, reflecting his ability to practice and experiment in a wide range of disciplines, not only architecture and design, but also cinema, painting, sculpture, music, drawing, and poetry. When examining La Pietra's legacy, from decorative reinterpretations to aggressively undermined domestic objects, it is important to consider the way we often take ordinary objects for granted.
