Biography

An architect, he was active in Turin at the time of Casorati, Gualino and Venturi, and became one of the promoters of architectural rationalism. In the late 1930s, he was accused of anti-Fascism and moved to Switzerland. In Milan in 1932, he published his important study Elementi dell'architettura funzionale, with an introduction by Le Corbusier. His most important works include the rationalist complex of workers' houses on stilts in Geneva (1927) and detached homes in Saillon (1934-35).
