Description
Perspectives Thirty Years of Sketches by Luigi Rosselli Architect, is a collection of sketch designs and accompanying essays and insights, compiled to celebrate thirty years of Luigi Rosselli's remarkable contribution to the built environment through his Sydney architectural practice. Luigi Rosselli arrived in Australia from New York in the early 1980s, as ‘Chief Inker’ with Romaldo Giurgola & Thorp’s team designing Australia’s Parliament House in Canberra. As a student he worked with leading Swiss architect Mario Botta, whose neo-Renaissance concept impressions are exemplars of late 20th century architectural artistry. As a ritual since founding his practice, Rosselli shows clients his freehand design concept drawings using black felt pens and white Tipp Ex (correcting fluid) on translucent yellow tracing paper (often called butter paper), torn from small rolls. These sketches forecast memorable future views of his building proposals – and the sketching style is sunny, inventive, romantic and elegant. Rosselli says “architectural concept sketches remain the most effective way to convey one’s first creative ideas – especially to clients who are themselves sophisticated and imaginative. Drawings help to begin a process where you can share development of the vision. As a professional practitioner, they help you build, brick by brick, the confidence and engagement of your client.” Luigi Rosselli exhibits an ‘intelligent hand’¹, a genial disposition and romantic values from both classical and Wrightian humanism in his architectural renderings across butter-tinted trace paper.
