Mario Botta (born 1943 in Mendrisio, Switzerland) he started work as an architect with Carlo Scarpa, Le Corbusier, and Luis Kahn. From his first detached houses in Ticino, Switzerland (1970), to the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco (1995), his architectural language has been defined as "simple, archaic, eternal, made of naked evidence and intense sensations." In addition to his bold architectural designs, Botta has designed objects for a number of manufacturers including Alias, Alessi, Artemide, Casamania & Horm, and Riva 1920.
