Spawning a new debate, 9 essays on Tafuri, put together by Peter Lang.
PREMISE. A major conference on Manfredo Tafuri took place in New York City in April 2006. The fulcrum of the event was, according to the organizers: the introduction of the English translation of Tafuri’s Interpreting the Renaissance: Princes, Cities, Architects (Yale University Press in association with the Harvard GSD, 2006), translated by Daniel Sherer. Their stated intention is to use the event “as an occasion for a new assessment of his critical legacies.”
