Description - Renzo Piano Building Workshop; Complete Works Volume 2 by Peter Buchanan
This second volume on Renzo Piano provides a study of the architect's working method, followed by a presentation of his building projects from 1987-1993. In an interview with the author, Piano discusses his early career, his attitude toward technology and his continuing evolution of what the author has termed a "natural architecture". Many of the completed buildings featured in the book are located in and around Piano's home town of Genoa, from the structures associated with the 1992 Expo in the old docks to the ground-hugging form of his own laboratory in Vesima.
