At the height of post-war modernism, the Italian architect Aldo Rossi published the treatise "L'Architettura della Città." Against the prevailing model of autoeconomic construction, he presents the city as a place steeped in history and the built archive of collective memory. The aim of his theory of architectural design is, therefore, an architecture of symbolic forms and identity-creating imagination. The public buildings and squares are of crucial importance. As monuments, they guide the inhabitants of the city in their day-to-day business in the presence of the past in the present and allow identification with the place. Thus, Aldo Rossi became a pioneer of postmodern architecture.
The course is recognized by the AKNW as an advanced training with an extent of one lesson of 45 minutes.
