SQUARE CIRCLE TRIANGLE. Bruno Munari. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2015. 288 pp. with 459 ills. 16 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781616894122 In English.
Publisher's description: In the early 1960s Italian design legend Bruno Munari published his visual case studies on shapes: Circle, Square, and, a decade later, Triangle. Using examples from ancient Greece and Egypt, as well as works by Buckminster Fuller, Le Corbusier, and Alvar Aalto, Munari invests the three shapes with specific qualities: the circle relates to the divine, the square signifies safety and enclosure, and the triangle provides a key connective form for designers. One of the great designers of the twentieth century, Munari contributed to the fields of painting, sculpture, design, and photography while teaching throughout his seventy-year career. This edition showcases three of Bruno Munari's classic books bound together in one volume for the first time.
