Livio Vacchini - Capolavori
Twelve texts on as many architectural masterpieces (from Stonehenge, Giza and the Parthenon to Notre-Dame-du-Haut by Le Corbusier and the Neue Nationalgalerie by Mies van der Rohe): pursuing their project to disseminate the work and thought of Livio Vacchini, Caryatide publish a new edition in French of Capolavori, the small (and immense) milestone, full of meaning and poetry, that the architect from Ticino wrote in 2006 just before his death.
Livio Vacchini (1933-2007) is one of the most revered architects of his time. His work was characterized by a constant search for perfection and by a perpetual questioning of architecture's fundamental principles.
