"We wanted to document urban culture at the send of the second millennium. The panorama is self-explanatory, self-contained. The artificial has turned into a 'natural' artifact. I say The City–and I know we made them–but I know I say The City as I could say The Mountains...They are there, we look at them, like them or not like them, we live with them and can think about them. What next?" (from Babara Radice's introduction). Sixth issue of this lavish bi-annual architecture and design publication, edited and published by Italian journalist Radice, founding member - with her husband, designer Ettore Sottsass - of the Memphis Group. This Metropolis themed issue showcases a photo by Fritz Lang, photos by Andy Warhol with an essay by Daniela Morera, travel ntes by Sottsass, a portfolio of plans by Beppe Caturegli, photos of Moscow by Helmut Newton, and a series of black-and-white photos by Sottsass, Le Corbusier, Timothy Hursley, Santi Caleca, and others. Light rubbing to edges. Near fine. Item #6533
