Florence Architecture since 1966

Archietcture in the city of Firenze today is deeply constrained by the mandate of the UNESCO heritage designation, and it was with this imposition in the mi-1960’s that the architects and Florence began dreaming a city and architecture they could never build. Andrea Branzi, Superstudio and Archizoom all came out of this ferment. These older traditions now inspire new generations of young designers in Italy to go beyond form. Florence is a design center is and it seems always will be an idea center.
