Vittorio Gregotti, 1927-2020


Having caught the coronavirus, one of Italy’s most renowned architects and theorists has died in Milan at age 92. Vittorio Gregotti, much admired by Spaniards since the postmodern years, graduated from the Politecnico di Milano and was in youth a militant organicist. Alongside Aldo Rossi he ended up leading the sector of those who, connecting the architectural project to history, endeavored to prioritize the city over buildings. A position he remained faithful to throughout a long career that saw Gregotti raising buildings of strong civic character, such as the Bicocca university district in Milan, the Belém Cultural Center in Lisbon, and, here in Spain, the renovated Barcelona Olympic Stadium on Montjuïc, where he collaborated with Correa and Milá, among others.
