Giancarlo De Carlo’s unpublished sketches at Triennale di Milano

A sentimental exhibition of architecture and a small tribute to a lesser-known, more private side of Giancarlo De Carlo.

 

Giancarlo De Carlo’s controversial, critical and political approach to architecture is probably one the most international, famous and critically-acclaimed face of Italy’s twentieth-century architectural practice. However, there is another side to De Carlo’s practice: a lesser known, more private design process. Through different-scale drawings and sketches and multimedia installations, Triennale di Milano is offering a new view on the Italian architect’s relationship with landscape, territory, the city, private life and the public eye  -offering an interesting insight on De Carlo’s thoughts and actions.
