I wrote two earlier blogs on Mendini. One in 2016 and one in February this year to commemorate his accomplishments after his death at the age of 87.
Last week i found one of his earliest dutch publications. An important one, because it preceded the commission of designing the Groninger Museum. Probably the exhibition was held to introduce Mendini to the dutch people of Groningen and prepare them for the adventurous building Mendini would design for the Groninger Museum.
This publication is from 1988 , published together with Politi editore and it is filled with the typical Mendini designs of which elements would be used outside and within the Groninger Museum. I love this book, which is now for sale at www.ftn-books.com
