Renzo Piano The Complete Logbook Renzo Piano | Foreword by Kenneth Frampton 34
Renzo Piano has created some of the most emblematic buildings of our age, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Shard in London, the Parco della Musica in Rome, and the New York Times Building in New York City. In the words of the Pritzker Prize jury, ‘The Pritzker Architecture Prize applauds Renzo Piano’s work in redefining modern and post-modern architecture. His interventions, contributions, and continued explorations to solve contemporary problems in a technological age, add to the definition of the art of architecture.’ Here, Renzo Piano presents in his own words the works on which he has built his reputation over a span of 50 years. Over 100 works are presented in more than 1,000 images, including photographs, drawings and sketches, both intimate and authoritative, all with commentaries by the architect that combine personal anecdote and technical description with original insights. This is an unmatched introduction to the work of one of the world’s most influential and inspiring architects.
