Giancarlo De Carlo / Moleskine

Inspiration and Process in Architecture is a series of monographs on key figures in modern and contemporary architecture. It offers a reading of the practice of design which emphasis the value of freehand drawing as a part of the creative process.

Giancarlo De Carlo (1919-2005) is one of Italy’s most influential modernist architects and a pioneer of participation focussed design. The series is presented in a completely new format combining an 18th century clothbound style with a front and back cover in raw grey cardboard. The books also incorporate classic Moleskine features.
