Variations of Identity: The Type in Architecture
Discover the lessons of Spanish architect and professor Carlos Martí Arís (1948-2020) in a translation of his book about the La Tendenza movement. Considered essential for today’s architectural culture, Arís presents an architectural theory in which the idea of type is not conceived as a mechanism of reproduction but rather, as a structure of form capable of multiple developments. The editorial project bringing Arís thoughts to the English speaking world includes an introduction written by Raphael Moneo, whose lucid look at the past and present will underline the timeless message of a work originally published in 1993.
