Item description for Virtual Terragni: CAAD in Historical and Critical Research by Mirko Galli...
Traditionally architectural models took time to build, and once built, they were static creations. Now, however, the technology of CAAD enables complex designs to be represented, varied and analysed with great speed and accuracy. The models created are dynamic and easily modified. This book shows how the electronic medium can be used to critically reconstruct unbuilt projects, looking in particular at projects by the famous Italian rationalist, Giuseppe Terragni. Four villas and several monument buildings are visually represented, their structures and functions examined and assessed using CAAD. Authors: Mirko Galli (*1969) studied at the ETH Zurich and is a practising architect in Lugano. Claudia Mhlhoff (*1967) studied at the ETH Zurich and the TU Darmstadt where she now has her own architectural office.
