The Italian master's complete oeuvre
Renzo Piano rose to international prominence with his co-design of the Pompidou Center in Paris, described by The New York Times as a building that "turned the architecture world upside down." Since then, he has continued to craft such iconic cultural spaces as the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago and, more recently, the Whitney Museum of American Art, an asymmetric nine-story structure in Manhattan's Meatpacking District with both indoor and outdoor galleries. In London, the Piano touch has also transformed the skyline with the Shard.
At the age of 84, the Italian maestro retains all of his enthusiasm and kindness - and his recent roster is more impressive than ever. As he confided to the author, "I think at a certain age, one can discover that there is what the French call the 'fil rouge,' a kind of red thread that relates one building to another over time. In my case, I believe it is about lightness and the art of building." From freshly built museums in Athens and Santander; ongoing works in Lisbon, London, Toronto, and Geneva; to such humanitarian projects as the Emergency Children's Surgical Hospital in Entebbe, Uganda, and the Children's Hospice in Bologna, Italy, Piano's career is a thrilling journey through the beauty and very essence of architecture.
Based on the massive XXL monograph, this widely updated edition brings the architect's definitive career overview to an accessible format and is illustrated by photographs, sketches, and plans.
Renzo Piano (born in 1937) studied at the University of Florence and at Milan's Polytechnic Institute. A recipient of the RIBA Gold Medal in 1989 and the 1998 Pritzker Prize, Piano's most iconic projects include the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Shard in London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. He has his main offices in his native Genoa and in Paris.
Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His TASCHEN books include the Architecture Now! series and monographs on Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Richard Meier, Zaha Hadid, and soon Norman Foster.
