Introduction by:

Mario Botta describes several built works, mostly houses, and his intent to use site conditions and context to shape the program layout and materials of each project. Botta argues that his architecture exploits the contradictions and realities of contemporary culture. He presents urban design projects that attempt to solve contextual problems bigger than the proposed project. He responds to questions about being classified a postmodernist, and where he feels architecture is headed.
