About this title
Carlo Scarpa was a virtuoso of light, a master of detail, a connoisseur of materials. In his lifetime he was often dismissed as "merely" an artist who also wanted to build. Today, however, it is clear that his own brand of Modernism made him one of the 20th-century architectural greats. Scarpa taught at the Venice architectural faculty. Over a period of three decades he designed exhibitions in London, Paris, Rome and Milan, and regularly for the Biennale in Venice, his native city. The major contributions to his fame, though, were museum projects such as the Gipsoteca Canoviana in Possagno and the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona.About the Author:
Sergio Los (*1934) studied architecture in Venice. He worked in the office of Carlo Scarpa from 1964 to 1970 and hereby gained deep insights into various projects and the way of developing his work. 1967 he wrote the first monograph on Scarpa, numerous publications followed. From 1968 on the author taught at the Faculty of Architecture at Venice University. He ran architectural offices together with Natasha F. Pulitzer in Venice, Padua and Milan.
