i would say the influence lies more in the approach of integrating architecture into the existing urban fabric(eg the IFC) rather than blasting holes in the city and filling them with self-referential modern monuments with no urban scale (60’s, 70,s 80’s Dublin).
I think stylistic and formal similarities are not that strong, as most of group 91 had gotten over their triangles and squares phase by then.
i thik there was a book on aldo rossi, possibly published by the aai, which had a foreword b yjohn tuomey- this may give some info straight from the source
