THE PROJECT OF AUTONOMY. Politics and Architecture Within and Against Capitalism

 

Autonomia was an Italian new social movement of the mid-to late-1970s that combined several single-issue activist groupsinto one movement united by a shared belief in maintaining their autonomy from the state. InThe Project of Autonomy, architect and educator Pier Vittorio Aureli traces the influence of autonomia on architectural thinking. Aureli examines how post-1968 political events and a rethinking of Marxist theory by intellectuals like Mario Tronti influenced a variety of that era’s architectural projects and writings, including Manfredo Tafuri’s critique of architectural ideology; architect Aldo Rossi’s reinvention of categories in his bookThe Architecture of the City; as well as Rossi’s 1962 government center for Turin.

Pier Vittorio Aureli is an architect and educator. His theoretical studies focus on the relationship between architectural form, political thinking, and urban history. Aureli teaches at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam and the Technical University of Delft and has been a visiting professor at the Architectural Association in London and Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. He is a frequent contributor to Log magazine and a cofounder of Dogma, an architectural collective that recently won first prize in an international competition for a new city for 500,000 inhabitants in South Korea.
