Architecture as a Living Act

Leonardo Ricci

"First monograph on Leonardo Ricci, a true maverick of 20th century architecture"

hp-grid-ricci-lt

The author adopts a multidisciplinary approach: the different disciplines in which Ricci excelled—architecture, painting, and writing— are analyzed in relation to each other.

Furthermore, his capacity to track down the primary human needs to which art and architecture should respond is read within the framework of existentialist philosophical thought, to which he often referred.

"Ricci’s work can be read as a pursuit of freedom, in his quest for a habitat in which architecture would be an organic thing, able to respond to the natural environment and to connect the body to the house, the neighborhood and the city, in a continuum that would make it possible for people to engage in free actions and discover new ways of existing."

"Ricci’s work matches with our present concerns, his ethical approach and his attention to the relationship between architecture and landscape can be held up as an example in this time of environmental and social urgency."
