The Sphere and the Labyrinth: Avant-Gardes and Architecture from Piranesi to the 1970sby Manfredo Tafuri, Robert Connolly (Translator), Pellegrino d'Acierno (Translator)
Manfredo Tafuri is the Director of the Department of History of Architecture at the Istituto
Tafuri probes the lines between reality and ideology, the gap that avant-garde ideology places between its own demands and its translation into techniques, the ways in which the avant-garde reaches compromises with the world, and the conditions that permit its existence.
Manfredo Tafuri is the Director of the Department of History of Architecture at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice.
