Italomodern 1

Architecture in Northern Italy 1946-1976

 Vienna-based architect Martin Feiersinger and his brother, artist and photographer Werner Feiersinger have extensively travelled across Northern Italy in order to document the region’s modern architecture after World War II. Italomodern 1 and 2 is the result of their travels, the most authoritative survey of Northern Italy’s architecture between 1946 and 1976.  In their study, they have focused exclusively on distinctive buildings rather than entire urban structures, and they have selected the projects included as exemplary representations of neorealism, rationalism, brutalism, and organic.

Italomodern 1 features 84 buildings and Italomodern 2 contains an additional 132 buildings. All of the buildings are represented with photographs, a concise text, the exact address, as well as with selected floor plans, sections, or elevations. The images present a subjective point of view, showing each building in its present state. An appendix provides rich information on the architects and selected other buildings and further reading for each firm. The book offers a glimpse into an era when society’s aspirations found expression in the built environment. Each volume is self-contained and also makes an insightful and useful guide for architecture lovers and travelers.
