Atlantis, by Carlo Piano and Renzo Piano

Staff Pick


In this compilation of thoughts and meditations on beauty, nature, art, meaning, architecture, and the fascinating idea of Atlantis, renowned architect Renzo Piano and his son, Carlo Piano, a curious explorer and journalist, send readers on an amusing sea adventure. While Carlo is skeptical of the audacious quest to find the lost island, Renzo is determined to see through what has been a decades-long dream. Their conversations debunk myths and trace ideas woven with historical anecdotes, design processes, and an obsession with exploring cities--mainly by sailing. An absolute delight to read!
