35.00

Discover the lessons of Spanish architect and professor Carlos Martí Arís (1948-2020) in a translation of his book about the La Tendenza movement. Considered essential for today’s architectural culture, Arís presents an architectural theory in which the idea of type is not conceived as a mechanism of reproduction but rather, as a structure of form capable of multiple developments. The editorial project bringing Arís thoughts to the English speaking world includes an introduction written by Raphael Moneo, whose lucid look at the past and present will underline the timeless message of a work originally published in 1993.

Description

The editorial project focuses on the translation of the book « Las variaciones de la identidad. Ensayo sobre el tipo en arquitectura » written by Carlos Martí Arís, from Spanish into two languages: French and English.
After having already translated in 2019 another book — « Silencios elocuentes » — by the same author, from Spanish into French, Cosa Mentale Editions wants to continue to make possible the discovery of the lesson of Carlos Martí Arís, considering it of fundamental importance for today’s architectural culture. In particular, in this book, the author presents an architectural theory according to which the idea of type is not conceived as a mechanism of reproduction but as a structure of form capable of multiple developments.
The editorial project includes an introduction written by Raphael Moneo, one of the best known Spanish architects on the international scene, whose lucid look at the past and present will underline the extremely current contents of a work originally published in 1993.
