In this project you can read a clear reference to the “house of steel frame”, which Albini and other young architects had made two years earlier for the V Triennale, under the guidance of Giuseppe Pagano, the director of “Casabella”. More generally, there can be traced an affinity with the Central-European avant-garde architecture, especially German and Scandinavian, noticeable in the solution devised by the internal staircase.
