Item description for Turin 1980-2011: Its Transformation and Its Images; Contemporary Architecture in Turin 5 (5 Contemporary Architecture in Turin) by Antonio De Rossi...

From the conversion of the Lingotto factory in the early 1980s to the 'sleepless nights' that enlivened the Winter Olympic Games in 2006, and up to the celebrations for 2011. A journey that embraces the delle Alpi Stadium, the Roman Quadrilateral, the Olympic Arch, demolition of ill-famed houses in Via Artom, the 'three centralities' of the Town Plan, the transformation of Piazza San Carlo into a pedestrian precinct, the voids created by the shutdown of the factories, and Turin's system of parks in search for the territorial images used by the city to represent itself. An interweaving of the political and physical dimensions to interpret the figures of a metropolis during a period of profound transformation.

A collection of small histories that helps identify future scenarios for a city that has unobtrusively embraced
