Review:

Carlo Scarpa combined a sensitivity to traditional materials and craftsmanship with an abstract sensibility. Scarpa s work in Venice, Verona, and surrounding towns uses an evocative layering of walls, spaces, geometric ornamentation, and finely crafted stone and metal to evoke an image of modernity where the human hand is aided rather than replaced by the machine All offer a brilliant vision of cultural transformation that is worth seeking out as a complement, or antidote, to the usual trek from ancient monument to ancient monument. "The Boston Phoenix"
""
The 20th Century Italian master Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) emerged from a Venetian tradition that merged art, craft, intellect, and, especially in his case, architecture Photos in this book make clear that Scarpa s works may need reviving, lest they too pass away. "Architecture"
""
For this chronological presentation of Scarpa s five-decade career, spanning 1932 to 1978, the photographers visited all 58 of the Italian master s completed structures (all but one in Italy), creating a gorgeous set of images in the process. Scarpa was often called upon to integrate his architecture into and around existing historic buildings, and the delicacy of these interventions still stand out. "Metropolis Magazine""
