NOTES ON ARCHITECTURE
"An architect can be judged a great artist on the basis of his plans even without having actually built anything. The project is to the physical building as the “manuscript” is to the printed book: the building is the social manifestation of the art, its “diffusion”, the opportunity afforded the public to participate in beauty (when there is any), just like the printed book."
The sixth volume of DIVISARE BOOKS is a collection of short texts on objectivity and rationalism in architecture written by Antonio Gramsci, the political philosopher who contributed to the founding of the Italian Communist Party.
ANTONIO GRAMSCI. NOTES ON ARCHITECTURE is part of the DIVISARE BOOKS RED SERIES.
