The most sensitive architects of the eastern world, especially in many of the finest examples we see in China, have begun to contrast the opulent western vision with a more domestic and introspective dimension of living. Of course, it’s always a mistake to generalize, and indeed, similar attitudes

Vienna – an invisible city?
Contemporary Vienna is – from an Italian perspective – paradoxical, almost an unknown city. Unknown, because most of its achievements are at first sight invisible.
