Aldo Rossi. Insulae

The exhibition Aldo Rossi. Insulae at the Museum of Architectural Drawing, shown in collaboration with the Fondazione Aldo Rossi in Milan, presents over 110 graphic works and drawings by the renowned Italian architect Aldo Rossi (1931–1997), the majority of which are being shown publicly for the first time.

The title is taken from a series of Rossi's drawings shown in the exhibition from a Latin word insula referring to a separately standing house, a method of construction that Rossi often incorporated in his architecture. The exhibition consists of three parts: “Corpus Mediolanensis”, “Insula” and “Works for Berlin”. These three “insulae” seek to show Rossi’s unmistakable signature, including his sense of forms and geometry, his historical references, the influence of antiquity on his work and his frequent poetic references to both architecture and art.
