He was called the “poet of construction”, building monumental buildings with classic shapes. At first a purist and theoretician, teaching at universities and writing books, Aldo Rossi later opened his body of work for the commercialisation of architecture. Major projects such as the apartment block in Schützenstraße in Berlin, or the Walt-Disney-Complex in Orlando, Florida had little to nothing to do with his “Architettura Razionale”. Rossi died following a car accident at Lago Maggiore, at age 66.
