Architect, urbanist, polemicist, passionate man of culture, Giancarlo De Carlo was one of the most important figures in 20th century Italian architecture. Ten years after his death, this book, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the Triennale di Milano, explores a lesser-known aspect of his production: freehand sketches. These small drawings, made mostly in the latter part of his life and now gathered together and preserved by his daughter Anna, form the somewhat private heart of his collection. Sometimes carried out according to a descriptive and functional vein towards in depth design analysis, sometimes purely creative, these sketches are suggestions, ideas or simply the entertaining result of completely personal research.
Edited by Anna De Carlo and Giacomo Polin, Giancarlo De Carlo. Unpublished Sketches is a small homage to the lesser-known and more private side of Giancarlo De Carlo.
