Bruno Minardi asserts the idea that the architecture stems not from intellectual issues but from the existing town, the place, the nature. His work is informed by a theoretical approach and a respect for existing world founded not imitation but in analogy. From this issue, he arises a vocabulary of formal types drawn not only from architecture but also from industrial landscape such as the repeated lean-to workshop roofs of the Venice Arsenale and the large cylindrical forms of industrial tanks. Stressing that, architecture is always part of an existing urban context, and that is should grow from local building and climatic considerations rather than intellectual choice in the abstract. Professor of Architectural and Urban Planning at IUAV (Venice) and UNIFE (Ferrara) and External Examiner at the A.A. (London).
