From DESIGN STUDIO EMANUEL CHRIST AND CHRISTOPH GANTENBEIN, ETH ZURICH:
Typology City Guide - ROMEFind places and buildings that other guides will never take you to. Rome Typology City Guide is a unique opportunity to discover the unknown buildings of Rome. After the success of the Typology Monograph, you can now bring the book in your pocket and find the hidden gems of 20th Century Architecture that most guides won't take you to - on location from your phone. Following two years of intensive research in five cities, Christ & Gantenbein and their research team at the ETH, Zurich present the first in a series of original city apps for architects and building enthusiasts. This inventory of 20th century metropolitan and essentially anonymous architecture represents a systematic yet subjective compilation of urban architecture around the world. The buildings, many relatively unknown, were chosen in order to provide a basis for looking at metropolitan design in the twentieth century, comparing the patterns and differences in building styles found around the world. The Rome Typology City Guide shows a selection of Rome building types (some of them are bound to disappear soon) App Features: Building Index Map of All Locations Favorite Building List Contact Info Each Typology comes with: -vital statistics: address, date of completion, architect, number of floors -description of context & history -floor plans & axonometric drawings -photos -map locator -interesting buildings nearby
