Aldo Rossi was an Italian architect and designer who achieved the unusual feat of international recognition in three distinct fields: theory, design, and architecture. He graduated in architecture in 1959 from Politecnico di Milano and later became a lecturer there in 1965. Rossi's theoretical and practical work made him an influential name in the latter half of the 20th century. He was a defining figure in the reshaping and reclaiming of the ever-growing urban landscape and criticized the moralism of early 20th century modernism. Rossi received the Pritzker Prize in 1990.
