Project Of Crisis: Manfredo Tafuri And Contemporary Architecture (writing Architecture)
An examination of the influential Italian architectural historian Manfredo Tafuri's historical construction of contemporary architecture.
The influential Italian architectural historian Manfredo Tafuri (1935-1994) invoked the productive possibilities of crisis, writing that history is a project of crisis (progetto di crisi). In this entry in the Writing Architecture series, Marco Biraghi explores Tafuri's multifaceted and often knotty oeuvre, using the historian's concept of a project of crisis as a lens through which to examine his historical construction of contemporary architecture.
