Presentation of the Book of Pierre-Alain Croset and Luka Skansi (Lund Humphries, London 2018):
Modern and Site Specific. The Architecture of Gino Valle 1946-2003
Since his early buildings in the 1950s at Udine in Friuli, north east Italy, Gino Valle has been recognized by international critics as one of the most original and creative European architects of the post-war period. His artistic talent, associated with a great intellectual curiosity and a genuine passion for new construction systems, led Valle to develop an architectural work that was resolutely open and multiform. The book of Pierre-Alain Croset and Luka Skansi (Lund Humphries, London 2018) makes available for the first time in English the only critical monograph dedicated to the work of Gino Valle.
