Item description for Claudio Silvestrin by Lucinda Byatt Franco Bertoni...

This monograph is the first-ever publication to document the work of Claudio Silvestrin, one of the world's leading contemporary architects and a master of minimalism. Integrity, clarity and an emphatic attention to detail characterise his architecture: austere without being intimidating, contemporary yet timeless. "His elemental architecture of light and abstract form suggests infinity and timelessness amid western transience. The spaces he creates out of stone, opalescent glass and planes of soft light and shadow convey a sense of mystery and transcendence of the material world." (The Architectural Review). Congenially designed by A G Fronzoni, this book contains enlightening essays, texts by Silvestrin himself, aphorisms on light, time and space, and a comprehensive presentation of his best known works, including the Neuendorf Villa in Majorca, House B in the Provence, Parisian stores for Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani and art galleries for Victoria Miro.
