Item description for Mario Botta - The Complete Works by Emilio Pizzi...

Mario Botta -- The Complete Works is the only complete edition of Botta's creative work co-designed and authorized by the architect himself; it is now internationally recognized as the definitive work on Botta.

These volumes draw a complete picture of Mario Botta's creative work as an architect, furniture designer, and exhibition and stage designer. Volume highlights include the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, the cathedral in Evry, the mountain chuch on Monte Tamaro (Ticino), the bank at Aeschenplatz, and the recently opened Tinguely museum, both of which are located in Basel. The newest projects are also introduced, such as the municipal library in Dortmund and the synagogue in Tel Aviv.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mario Botta - The Complete Works?

86 projects copiously illustrated and concise  Nov 6, 2005
ISBN: 8425217180 is an exclusively black & white, concise and copiously illustrated paperback survey of 86 major works published in 1997 by Gustavo Gili (GG) of Barcelona in English and Spanish side by side on 256 pages, as a 4th edition. A short introductory part on several pages is followed by the main review part presenting each shortly described project in a combination of excellent B&W photos, plans, sections, elevations, hard line presentation drawings, sketches, etc. The book is ended with a biography, writings, list of works, etc. on several pages. Most of hundreds of only B&W illustrations are technical, but all (incl. B&W photos) are of a good quality, well balanced, crisp and legible. Like all from the Works and Projects series, it is solid among architectural monographs, but slightly smaller than the Studio Paperback series published by Birkhäuser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zürich)/18740* (London).
an overview on Botta's works in architecture mainly  Dec 17, 2000
The book gives an overview on Botta's works in the past, present and it lists some projects with their drawings and models that are proposed to be done in the future. The book is sufficient, in my opinion, to provide a basic understanding of Botta's philosophies and the way he handles architecture.

almost every information given in the book is given in three different languages. Hence, the book might be useful to some of those who don't use English.

There is a small gallery at the end of the book that illustrates some of the design work that Botta did outside architecture like furniture, vases, among others. the collection is informative. However, I wished I found a collection with larger photos and more details.

So, in general, I rate the book as a good reference and overview on Botta's works, especially architectural ones.
