9780714848006: Carlo Scarpa

"

The definitive monograph on a celebrated Italian architect, Carlo Scarpa includes more than 350 photographs, sketches, and architectural plans, along with in‐depth ‘walk throughs’ of over 15 key projects such as the Central Pavilion in the Giardini of the Venice Bienniale, the Olivetti Showroom in St. Mark’s Square, the Canova Museum, and the Brion Cemetery. A cult figure with mass appeal, Scarpa was heralded by architectural luminaries such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn. Today, Scarpa’s work is more relevant than ever.

Review:

"

"With 350 images and drawings, Carlo Scarpa documents the architect’s dramatic modernism – the sweeping red staircase of his Banca Popolare in Verona, his sleek concrete‐and‐wood Olivetti showroom in Venice – even as it celebrates his poetic vision." – ELLE Décor

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is a unique figure in the Modern movement and his work in fact challenged, and continues to challenge, accepted notions of modern architecture. While several books have been published on the subject of Scarpa, the majority narrow in their focus, no comprehensive monograph has been produced to date and certainly not approaching the breadth and depth proposed here by Robert McCarter, who has developed a reputation and following for his meticulously researched, experentially-based, and jargon-free accounts of key figures in Modern architecture. This book will provide the definitive study of Scarpa s many accomplishments, including such works at the Canova Museum, the Castelvechhio Museum, the Brion Cemetery, among others.
