Piano. Complete Works 1966-Today

This monograph is packed with photographs, sketches and plans that cover Italian architect Renzo Piano's entire career to date.



Renzo Piano gained international fame with his co-design of the Pompidou Center in Paris, described by The New York Times as a building that "turned the architectural world upside down." Since then, he has continued to design iconic cultural spaces such as the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

At 84, the Italian maestro still has all his enthusiasm and friendliness - and his recent program is more impressive than ever. As he confided to the author, "I think at a certain age you can discover that there is something the French call the 'fil rouge,' a kind of red thread that connects one building to another over time. In my case, I think it's about lightness and the art of building." From newly built museums in Athens and Santander, ongoing works in Lisbon, London, Toronto and Geneva, to humanitarian projects such as the Emergency Children's Surgical Hospital in Entebbe, Uganda, and the Children's Hospice in Bologna, Italy, Piano's career is an exciting journey through the beauty and essence of architecture.

Based on the massive XXL monograph, this widely updated edition brings the architect's definitive career overview into an accessible format and is illustrated with photographs, sketches and floor plans.
