HERITO: a new issue will be available soon

HERITO, no. 17–18
Cold War Modern Architecture
A special, double issue will be available soon

The picture that emerges is indeed enticing: a generation of artists who remained unconnected and clung to their own path, while the international style of modernism was experiencing its heyday. In their own manner, they opposed the system, as they did not let themselves be pigeonholed into any doctrine, be it architectural or political.
