GABRIELE BASILICO, cityscapes
Gabriele Basilico (Milano 1944 – 2013).
This book presents 350 photographs by Gabriele Basilico, taken from 1984 to 1999. Curated by Filippo Maggia and Gabriele Basilico, with an essay by Álvaro Siza.
«To which objects does Basilico dedicate his detailed observation of space? Always to assemblies and not to details isolated from their context. He also avoids the great landscapes and rather tries to highlight, in one way or another, a nodal point, a principle of articulation and organization or, again, of tension. Hence his interest in crossings, for the facades in their relationship with the road, for the architectures of the ports».
