Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory

Edited by Paola Pellandimi, John Boyer. Text by John Boyer, Gillo Dorfles, Aldo Colonetti, Mario Botta, Carlo Bertelli, Lionello Puppi, Roman Hollenstein, Jacques Gubler.

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, opened its doors to the public in January 2010 and is one of the most inspired and inspiring spaces in the region. Designed by the eminent Swiss architect Mario Botta (born 1943), the museum's architecture displays a sculptural power that connects its appearance to the dynamic art it houses. In 2014, the museum pays homage to its designer with a monographic exhibition on this Swiss master architect, who is internationally renowned for his minimalist style and use of traditional materials such as brick and stone. Botta's buildings respect topographical conditions, regional factors and building materials. This richly illustrated catalogue is published on the occasion of this exhibition. From the diversity of Mario Botta's activity and realized work, it focuses on four key themes: libraries, museums, theaters and religious buildings. These themes express Botta's idea of "spaces of memory." The book also includes essays--including a chapter titled "Encounters" which presents a selection of works and artists that have influenced Botta's thoughts in fundamental ways, and to whom the architect feels indebted--plus a biography, a list of works, a list of personal and group exhibitions and a bibliography.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Jordan Hruska

The Swiss architect Mario Botta once described his hometown as “madre e matrigna” — “mother and stepmother” — an apt description for the Italian-speaking Swiss province of Ticino, which possesses cultural sensibilities of both nations. And just like his nuanced patrimony, the architectural style Botta has honed over a 50-year career stems from a mixture of influences. His half-century of work is celebrated in “Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory,” a monograph just released from Silvana Editoriale ($60 at artbook.com).

The book features a heavily illustrated index of Botta’s public projects — including the many sacred spaces he designed, as well as museums, theaters and libraries around which the exhibition was organized.
