Parution : D. Donetti, C. Rachele, Building with Paper: The Materiality of Renaissance Architectural Drawings, Turnhout, Brepols, 2021
Against the scholarly tendency to treat architectural disegno in highly intellectualized terms, the essays collected in this volume offer a new perspective on this early modern practice, by reinserting it into the messy Lebenswelten of the architectural workshop and the building site.
Dario Donetti is Collegiate Assistant Professor Renaissance and Contemporary Architecture at the University of Chicago.
