Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art

The first books of Officina editions appeared in 1964 for initiative of Aldo Quinti.

In those years the leading Italian publishers reserved a sporadic attention to the study of architecture and this was just the field of Quinti's publishing house called Officina: a research laboratory characterized by friendly and collaborative relations with the Authors, a production always channeled through specific series, from a set simple and non-dispersive guide-lines.The publishing house soon began to take care not only of architecture but also of sociology, ethnology, linguistics, art, theater and cinema.

Since 2002, with a different director, Officina Edizioni pursues the original objectives with new strategies: keeping the existing collaborations, strengthening the relationship with the directors of series, launching new publications and collaborating with universities.

Today OE participates proactively to national and international debate on architecture and its multiple intersections with the worlds of humanistic and scientific knowledge, with the aim of reaching a wider audience of scholars.
