Villa Carminati [1988]

Roberto Morsi

A late-era, thoroughly brutalist residence, Italian architect Roberto Morsi’s best known work layers a set of rotated geometries (not dissimilar in diagram to the Hanselmann House) and showcases concrete inside and out. Detailing such as horizontal bands of glazing, integrated lighting and a procession stair to the entry all appear cut from the main volume, all lending weight to a very angular piece of architectural futurism.
