Andrea Branzi. The Project in the Age of Relativity (English edition)
From Radical Territory to Neo-Primitive Metropolis.
Andrea Branzi’s Theoretical Urbanism
Andrea Branzi, Elisa C. Cattaneo
From radical research to contemporary design, this book collects Andrea Branzi’s work about city-design and a new opportunity to interpret and anticipate the next dynamics of society.
Territories that are conceptual categories, through spaces that are offered up by reality such that design can act and perform cognitively: in this sense, the city becomes a critical concept capable of overcoming its own image. Each passage presents a precise anthropological articulation: from the concept of commodity civilization of the Sixties to that of immateriality, from the concept of the metropolis to that of the anthropological territory, in which the infinitely small and the immensely large coincide, to the point of generating and passing beyond our commonly held concept of the city.
