Kay Bea Jones' illuminating study of selected works by Studio Albini will reintroduce his contributions to one of the most productive periods in Italian design. Suspending Modernity follows the evolution of Albini's most important buildings and projects, even as they reveal his apprehensive attitudes about the modern condition. Albini clarified the vital role of tradition in modern architecture as he experimented with domestic space. His cohort defied CIAM ideologies to re-socialize postwar housing and speculate on ways of reviving Italian cities. Jones argues here that Albini's masterful use of materials and architectural expression mark an epic paradigm shift in the modern period.
