Carlo Scarpa Architect: Intervening with History, 1953-1978 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Phyllis Lambert, Founding Director and Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) has noted, "“Faced with the imperative of intervening in the historic fabric of Italian cities, Carlo Scarpa (1906-78) devised a symbolic journey through time and space: uncovering various layers of a building’s past, rediscovering the power of its strongest elements, and transforming even its most banal accretions to return the structure to a vital role in public life.” This distinguished 254-page namesake exhibition catalogue, "Carlo Scarpa, Architect: Intervening with History" explores Scarpa's evocative ideas through his greatest achievements. The publication features hundreds of reproduction images of Scarpa's magnificent drawings, and photographs of delicate basswood analytical models, fabricated by New York architect George Ranalli. The book displays a portfolio of inventions that have pushed the bounds of modern architecture way beyond previously established notions, to ignite architectural imagination!
