Carlo Scarpa, published by Phaidon, introduces you to the work of the master of Italian modernist architecture. The richly illustrated, most comprehensive monograph on Scarpa to date has been edited by architect and writer Robert McCarter, who has authored many books and publications on modern architecture.
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.
