Carlo Scarpa (1906 1978) was denied the appropriate appreciation during his lifetime. His work was dismissed as just being art and only after his death people began to understand the high quality contained. This book shows the development of his individual architectural language by linking aspects of the arts with architecture. From his sensitive consideration of the urban context to the composition of stunning details; the author manages to give the reader an insight into the architect s work. Especially the investigation in his exhibition designs illustrate Scarpa s knowledge of material and his solving of complex problems. Places like the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona became a Mekka for everybody seeking the ultimate refinement in exhibition design and restoring old buildings.
