Michela Rosso: Confronting Architectural Cultures in the Unbuilt Mansion House Square Scheme by Mies van der Rohe, London 1962-1985
Michela Rosso is associate professor of architecture at Turin Polytechnic. Recently she has extended her field of research to include the English architectural scene of the 1930s and 1950s, and the impact of Nikolaus Pevsner's historical work in England. On this subject, Rossa has published the book La storia utile, which deals with architectural history in England in relation to modernism and architectural preservation. Among her more recent publications are contributions to two collections of essays, Reassessing Nikolaus Pevsner, edited by Peter Draper, and Summerson and Hitchcock: Centenary Essays on Architectural Historiography, edited by Frank Salmon.
