First there was Francesco Colonna’s Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a novel about death and architecture written in the Renaissance, wherein distraught Poliphilus searches for his dead beloved among the ruins of Antiquity the novel is splendidly illustrated and was printed in by Aldus Manitusand there was another Italian, Gianbattista Piranesi, who in the late 18th century etched his strange portrayals of the ruins of old Rome to almost universal acclaim.

After Colonna, Piranesi partook in the French Enlightenment’s love for “paper architecture”: But, like Colonna’s delight in drawing ruins, Piranesi’s etchings of his “Carceri d’Invenzione” Prisons of the Imagination, also available here at Amazon. The “paper architecture” devised by contemporary Russian architects Brodsky and Utkin in many ways restate Piranesi’s “paper [Roman] ruins”.

In their book, Brodsky and Utkin go back to imaginative architectural drawing to comment heavily on the political restrictions in midth-century architecture of the Soviet Union and make etchings simulating 18th-century drawings and etchings that exaggerate the irrational State political demands on soviet architects, all of which is presented as delusional wanderings of extravagant architects of that time.

A mixture of black architectural humor and political criticism, the plates of this book speak by themselves without a written statement by the authors.

A beautiful architectural nightmare not to be missed! I have treasured my edition for years and this new edition does not do justice. Great for that weird, quirky person in your life. I was drawn to this after seeing a few originals at the London Tate earlier this year. The book is not large enough to do justice to the intricate details of the prints. The print quality is decent but not great. Good for the price. The size of the book is perfect for showing the beautifully rendered projects and illustrations done by this little known duo at least in South America.
