about

This is the first book in English to focus on the work of the Italian architects Mario Asnago (1896–1981) and Claudio Vender (1904–86), whose firm, Asnago Vender, transformed midcentury Milan. At the end of World War II, Milan was architecturally stagnant, with few recent constructions of interest to complement its historic core. Soon, however, Milan was the center of a number of remarkably creative architectural visions—not least of them that of Asnago Vender. Through their many building commissions, to which they brought a clean, modernist aesthetic, they helped to create the vibrant, architecturally unique city that visitors and residents enjoy today. This book weds lavishly produced illustrations of major projects and plans with insightful essays offering in-depth analysis of the conceptual and material aspects of Asnago Vender’s creations.
Adam Caruso is chair of architecture and construction at ETH Zurich. Helen Thomas studied architecture at Liverpool University and earned a PhD in art history and theory from the University of Essex.
