About the Designer: Renowned architect and designer Aldo Rossi (1931-1997) played a significant role in shaping the postmodern movement and left an indelible mark on the architectural landscape. In 1990, he became the first Italian to be honored with the Pritzker Prize for architecture, solidifying his standing as the preeminent Italian architect of the latter half of the 20th century. Rossi's unique approach, characterized by abstraction, reduction, and brevity, employed a language of primary shapes, geometric patterns, and subtle evocation, resulting in some of the most profoundly poetic works in architecture and design of his era. As praised by Ada Louise Huxtable, an esteemed architectural critic and Pritzker juror, Rossi was "a" outstanding figure in the field.
