Aldo has been very important for the study of the nature and the history of the city, but as architects we are very different: he was interested chiefly in formal aspects, in particular in certain forms —like the triangle, for instance, so frequently used in his designs— whereas for us it is essential to meet primary human needs first of all. Then comes the final form of the design.
