Aldo Rossi, a practicing architect and leader of the Italian architectural movement La Tendenza, is also one of the most influential theorists writing today. The Architecture of the City is his major work of architectural and urban theory. In part a protest against functionalism and the Modern Movement, in part an attempt to restore the craft of architecture to its position as the only valid object of architectural study, and in part an analysis of the rules and forms of the city's construction, the book has become immensely popular among architects and design students.

Aldo Rossi talks very longer about his ideas in architecture. He is a point of connection of the Italian and American architecture. In this sense we can tell about a man who has understood the social and artistic motivations those are related to his specific interpretation of the life of the cities. The more consistent point of starting of his analysis is if the city had had a plan which determined its evolution or not.Next the author explicates the historical events whom have determined the origin of spaces or places in particular points of the city.

I enjoyed this book where Rossi laid out his argument on how architecture tells the city's history as well as creates its fabric.

I got this book a couple of days ago. It is used book but like new. I am fully satisfied for this deal.
The Architecture of the City is the principal theoretical text by Aldo Rossi, and constituted one of the first attempts to re-examine the function of architecture within its urban context, after the reductive theories of CIAM. Despite some of its contestable aspects [the naïve interpretation of the Mietskaserne in Berlin for instance], and some of its disjointed chapters, it still presents one of the key documents on urban thought in the twentieth century, along with Le Corbusier's "Urbanisme" and Rem Koolhaas's "Delirious New York". In this work, Rossi articulates certain key notions such as 'locus', 'urban artifact' and 'collective memory'; relying on the work of urban geographers and historians, sociologists and economists to draw a comprehensive understanding of the city as a framework for life. Underlying this is Rossi's call for the revival of the humanist city as a vital ground for culture. This book is not an easy read at times, and is definitely not a textbook for undergraduates. Its lessons are still valid and timely nevertheless, and should be remembered by architects, at a time when other theorists celebrate the 'dissolution' of cities under the momentary glare of a globalized world.
