On the legacy of Nervi & Piranesi's columns
A. A. Dutto (2017). Columns of magnificenza. Piranesi and Nervi in their 61. LOBBY (The Bartlett School of Architecture), 6, 138-141.
Piranesi and Nervi, at a distance of two hundred years, propose great architectures aimed at representing their respectively modern civilizations. Both devote themselves to the architecture of the column, the element par excellence, in which features of science, economics and aesthetics eventually converge.
