Description

Published by Taschen, Gio Ponti provides a compact insight into the career of one of the most influential Italian architects of the 20th century. The designer of Milan’s Pirelli Tower, Gio Ponti (1891–1979) was an exceptionally multidisciplinary artist who worked in the fields of architecture, design, crafts, journalism and academic research. The book was written by a Graziella Roccella, an Italian freelance architect and assistant professor in architectural design, and it is part of Taschen’s Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. Editor of the collection is the German art historian Peter Gössel.

Architect, magazine editor, artist, academic: Gio Ponti’s multifaceted oeuvre blurred boundaries across creative disciplines and lead the evolution of modern design in Italy. Filled with archival images, a timeline, and map of his Milanese buildings, this dedicated introduction traces Ponti’s most celebrated works and provides an extensive overview of the master designer’s sublime career.
