The Architecture of Pica Ciamarra Associati
From Urban Fragments to Ecological Systems
Antonietta Iolanda Lima
Edition Axel Menges, 2019
Since 1970, based in an isolated building situated on the peninsula of Posillipo, Italy, Pica Ciamarra Associati has acted as a laboratory of architectural and urban design which has gradually incorporated new members and new energies over the time: using a multidisciplinary approach, the roots of the architectural practice lie in the intensive theoretical and practical work begun in the early 1960s by Massimo Pica Ciamarra. This monograph tells the long story, unfolding over a period of over fifty years of a team of Neapolitan architects and designers, who have maintained the lively spirit of the practice which is still geared towards the future.
