Scope and Content

The project series documents "The Curious Mr. Pettena", a series of photographs taken by Pettena during his stay in the United States from 1971 to 1973. During that time "[Pettena] discovers views and contexts which he feels near to his theoretic and visual work, a temporary architecture as well, documenting research and whatever comes from the mind, making it real, or discovering it in something already built where nature has worked so that it may become part of a common language or subject." [1]

The project series contains the photograph series and a project description.
