Aldo Rossi Architecture 1981–1991 (ed. Morris Adjmi, Princeton Architectural Press, 1991) is a comprehensive and richly illustrated monograph of Aldo Rossi (1931–1997), Italian architect, urbanist and theorist of postmodern architecture.
The contents is divided into four parts: Part One approaches Aldo Rossi’s architectural thinking with two essays written by Morris Adjmi and Diane Ghirardo. Part Two covers Rossi’s architectural production from the Modena cemetery design (Cemetery of San Cataldo, 1971) until 1991. Each project is presented with ample illustration and a short description of the project’s essential architectural features. Part Three contains Karen Stein’s analysis of Rossi’s early works and Aldo Rossi’s own essay titled Invisible Distances. Part Four contains important background information such as chronological list of projects and designs and biographical information.
