Giancarlo de Carlo: Experiments in Thickness, Everything without Content
Kersten Geers, Jelena Pancevac, Joris Kritis
Verlag Walther und Franz Kônig
Italian architect Giancarlo de Carlo (1919+2005) first visited Urbino in 1951 to carry out a minor refurbishment of the offices of the rector of the University. This was the beginning of his lifetime engagement with the small town where he continued working over the next five decades. This book is part of the „Everything without Content“ series by Kersten Geers, Jelena Pancevac and Joris Kritis, and it presents the work Giancarlo de Carlo built in Urbino in the 1960s and 70s, in the shadow of his involvement in Team 10 debates that challenged modernist doctrines on architecture and urbanism. The eight buildings in this book are presented in drawings by students of the Academy of Architecture USI, Mendriso, and photographs by Stefano Graziani.
