This book, collecting sketches, maquettes, project drawings and notional references from architecture to science or music intermingled in graphic narratives, composes a highly autobiographical and layered manifesto. Theoretical ideas and architectural practice coexist systematically, tracing out Cino Zucchi's scientific and personal profile.
