Since he first appeared in the world of comic books as a partner to Claude Rénard in 1980, François Schuiten has become a fundamental author to explain the evolution of European comics through the last quarter of the 20th Century. Throughout his career, Schuiten and his works have revealed an extraordinary example of both theoretical and formal coherence in the creation of a fragmentary world where his different interests and obsessions crystallize in architectural shapes. Architecture and engineering, their logics, and their representation have been the vehicle for Schuiten to reshape this multiplicity of interests into imaginary scenarios where an exquisite heterogeneity coexists with the unbearable coherence of the surreal. Built in the style of an interior ‘veduta’, the album La Tour (The Tower, 1987) offers re-reading of Giambattista Piranesi’s work through a rendition of the spaces he created for the “Carceri d’invenzione” (1745–1760).
