Scope and Content

This series includes student projects produced by Alessandro Poli between the years 1963 and 1970, Poli's professional work with Superstudio from 1970 to 1972, and his work as an independant architect from 1972 to the mid 1990s. The series documents his architectural projects, mainly in Italy, as well as his conceptual and research projects, such as "Architettura Interplanetaria (1970-1971)" [See AP148.S1.1970.PR02] and "Zeno, une cultura autosufficiente (1972-1980)" [See AP148.S1.1972.PR01], and his designs for furniture. Poli's latest projects includes mainly conceptual work for competition entries in Italy, such as "Ideas competition, Riqualificazione cava di San Carlo, San Vincenzo, Livorno, Italy (1988)" [See AP148.S1.1988.PR02] and "Ideas competition, Riqualificazione centro Storico di Pontassieve, Florence, Italy (1996)" [See AP148.S1.1996.PR01].

The series contains drawings, predominantly conceptual drawings, including sketches, and some presentation panels. Also included are notebooks, photographic materials, mainly photomontages, and storyboards documenting the projects. Furthermore, there are artefacts, such as objects for the "Zeno, une cultura autosufficiente (1972-1980)," and models for his student work, for his furniture designs, for competition entries.
