Italian architect Umberto Riva (1928–2021), one of the masters of Italian architecture, was also an accomplished designer and painter. A student of Carlo Scarpa at IUAV—Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, he inherited an artistic and artisanal attitude, a taste for open forms, and a sensitivity for an operational scale that extends from the material detail to the landscape. His work (which also includes painting for a long time) ranges from the design of objects and lamps where light becomes the protagonist, to urban accommodation projects, passing through residential buildings, schools, churches, interior architecture and exhibition installations.

This book is conceived as an anthology with an elucidating series of critical essays taken from out-of-print books. A collaboration with the architect’s personal archive and with the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal allowed the retrieval and presentation of his sketches and drawings.
