Pier Luigi Nervi: Architecture as Challenge

Published by Silvana Editoriale
Edited by Cristiana Chiorino, Carlo Olmo. Text by Christoph Pourtois, Marcelle Rabinowicz, Elisabetta Margiotta Nervi.

The Italian engineer, architect and builder Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979) is responsible for some of the world's architectural masterpieces including St. Mary Cathedral in San Francisco, George Washington Bus Terminal in New York and Victoria Square Tower in Montreal. Pier Luigi Nervi: Architecture as a Challenge provides a complete overview of this prolific and versatile master of twentieth-century architecture, examining his career from its outset in the early 1920s up to the 1970s. In addition to a range of Nervi's buildings and public projects, the publication presents his pioneering research into technologies and construction materials. For example, during the 1940s, Nervi developed uses for a reinforced concrete, which aided in the rebuilding of many buildings and factories throughout Western Europe following World War II. The catalogue features a range of specific case studies, plus a comprehensive biography and bibliography.
