  Aldo Rossi
Architecture is a profession in which talent matures slowly.
This rarest of architectural capacities, the power to be radically of a place and to impart a meaning to objects far beyond their origin, makes of Rossi an architect whose reflections, lectures, and buildings capture our attention.
Foremost among them was Peter Eisenman's Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies, which, by means of exhibitions and the publication of Rossi's writings, laid the groundwork for a steadily widening audience and helped position Rossi's thought in the area of architectural controversy during the 1970s.

The Nagi MoCA is of importance not because of its size but because of its integrated effort to create a symbolic structure, in harmony both with the art that it houses and gives significance to, and with the local traditions and topography.
Takamatsu calls this 50 m[eter] high quadruple tower, which emits a gentle white light, a 'monument without form.' Despite its very modern appearance, this seemingly unnatural calm brings to mind the fact that calm and reflection are traditions of the Japanese spirit, which are being swept aside by rampant urbanization and commercialization," Jodidio maintained.
