Building study sketches: Swiss architect Mario Botta reveals his drawings

Mario Botta was born in Mendrisio in 1943. After an apprenticeship with the architectural firm of Carloni and Camenisch in Lugano, he went on to attend the Art College in Milan and then study at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice. Directed by Carlo Scarpa and Giuseppe Mazzariol Mario received his professional degree in 1969.

During his time in Venice he had the opportunity to meet and work for Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn. His professional activity as an architect began in 1970 in Lugano upon building his first single-family houses in Canton Ticino.
