Accompanying an exhibition travelling Europe in 2010 and 2011, this catalogue provides a complete overview of one of the 20th century’s great structural architects. Among Nervi’s achievements are the George Washington Bus Terminal in New York and the Victoria Square Tower in Montreal; such works epitomise his pioneering research into materials and technologies, and his dedication to unorthodox public works. Illustrated with photographs, plans and drawings, the text explores Nervi’s inspirations and socially-minded vision, and examines his position and popularity among contemporaries and collaborators such as Gropius, Breuer and Le Corbusier.
