Monograph

In abstracto

Sull'architettura di Giuseppe Terragni
  • Alberto Pireddu,

In abstracto is an in-depth study of the work of Giuseppe Terragni's illustrious genius, seen in the analytical vision of an accurate research on abstraction in architecture. Abstraction presents itself as a paradigm of a path towards essence, a form sought by Terragni as "limpid, elementary and perfect" and, therefore, universal. «This book is more than just another book on Terragni. It is a careful look at that abstraction which is necessary and essential nowadays. Understanding the way Pireddu does in this beautiful text that abstract architecture, in abstracto architecture, is an essential architecture, means understanding everything in one go. It means understanding that abstraction, far from being coldness, is wealth. The wealth of freedom. Understanding that abstract architecture, in abstracto, is based on truth. And that beauty, the sought-after beauty, is the splendour of truth. As Plato taught and Sant'Agostino then explained. Understanding that beauty, truth and freedom are the basis of architecture means having understood everything about Terragni». From Alberto Campo Baeza’s Foreword.
