The Aldo Rossi papers contain a selection of works by the prolific architect, writer, artist and theorist. The collection
includes notebooks, lectures and course materials, assorted writings and correspondence, drafts for publications, clippings
and ephemera. A set of architectural drawings for the Palazzo dei Congressi, Milan (not realized) consisting of preliminary
sketches and design plans as well as an architectural design in pencil and oil are also included.
One of the most important Italian architects of the second half of the 20th century Aldo Rossi is considered by some to be
an integral author of the postmodern movement of architecture. Rossi received international acclaim not just as an architect
but also as a designer, artist and theorist.
