Featuring documentation of the complete known work of Sant'Elia (1888-1916), this catalogue provides a significant review of the unrealized but highly influential designs of the celebrated Italian Futurist architect, whose manifesto of 1914 and visionary sketches of monumental modernist structures profoundly affected the course of 20th-century European architecture. Five critical essays illustrated with related works by other architects appraise Sant'Elia's position in the context of early 20th-century artistic trends, discuss the character and impact of his utopian urban designs, and examine his approach in relation to the principles promoted by turn-of-the-century Viennese architect Otto Wagner.
