Product description

Review

"Scarpa's career and working practices have been comprehensively researched and documented in Robert McCarter's new monograph for Phaidon Press... McCarter's carefully layered, first-hand narratives offer a rich evocation of each building project."―Disegno Daily

"...Illustrated with a handsome selection of sketches, plans and photographs... [Robert McCarter is] an engaging guide..."―Apollo

"In this substantial volume, McCarter leads us by the hand through Scarpa's achievements. He gives us a survey that is both vast, and in the spirit of Scarpa, meticulously detailed."―Curated Object

"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 Decor

From the Inside Flap

The work of Carlo Scarpa challenged, and
continues to challenge, accepted notions
of modern architecture. While several books
have been published on his work, none has
approached the breadth and depth of this
monograph by Robert McCarter, who is
celebrated for his meticulously researched,
experientially based, and jargon-free accounts
of key figures in modern architecture. This
book is the definitive study of Scarpa's many
accomplishments, including such works at the
Canova Museum, the Castelvecchio Museum and
the Brion Cemetery, among others. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
