Starting from the beginning allows us to understand the long journey architecture takes in even the formative of hands and often, surprising shifts that occur in its journey. These early projects grant us a glimpse into the early, naive, ambitious and at points rough edges of soon to be architectural masters.
In this installment we look at Aldo Rossi and his San Cataldo Cemetery. While not his first project under his own name, it would become the project tied to the progression and growth of his career and one of his largest impacts on the discipline as a whole.
