    The city enters the pathways of life. His thesis advisor was Piero Portaluppi and he graduated in Culture and his family became central to his life. In addition to being an architect and writer, he worked as an industrial designer, notably for Alessi.

    The material of a bell is transformed into a cannon ball; the form of an amphitheatre into that of a city; the form of a city into a palace. At this point, his work became more incisive as his theory reopened and knitted the links back together of various pasts, memories, myths and mythology. On that occasion, Libeskind produced three machines, three mnemonic devices: the reading machine, the memory machine and the writing machine. He also looks at the current issues of stardom, overexposure, and commercialization which Rossi anticipated, debating them in relation to melancholy.

    In he published his autobiography, A scientific autobiography. These were critical years in which Rossi developed open, intricate drawings and projects full of possibilities. See Article History Aldo Rossi, born May 3,MilanItaly—died September 4,MilanItalian architect and theoretician who advocated the use of a limited range of building types and concern for the context in which a building is constructed. The house is a one-story structure, whose single-room depth threads interior and exterior to form an interrelated whole.
