Ponti entered into a partnership with architects Emilio Lancia and Mino Fiocchi in 1923. In 1928, Ponti established Domus magazine. Domus became one of the world’s leading magazines of its type, and is still being published to this day. As a professor of architecture, he lectured all over the world and delighted in inspiring a new generation of designers. In 1941 Ponti also returned to the publishing world, helping to create Stile magazine where he continued as editor for the next six years. At the height of Ponti’s career, along with Pier Luigi Nervi and Arturo Danusso, he earned the commission to design the Pirelli Tower in Milan. Construction began on the 32-story tower, the second skyscraper built in Milan, in 1956. In 1951, Ponti designed the master plan, and two individual block contributions, for the IINA l´Istituto Nazionale per le Assicurazione) Casa quarter housing project in Milan. In 1952 he went into partnership with the architect Alberto Rosselli. After the death of Rosselli he continued to work with his longtime partner Antonio Fornaroli. From 1953 to 1957, he built the Hotel della Città et de la Ville and the Centro Studi Fondazione Livio e Maria Garzanti, in Forlì (Italy), by the assignment of Aldo Garzanti. He was also invited to collaborate on projects all over the world, such as the Villa Planchart in Caracas, Venezuala and the Denver Art Museum in the United States. Other projects were completed in Hong Kong, Baghdad, Eindhoven, and San Francisco.
