Carlo Scarpa is a definitive monograph on the celebrated Italian architect. This beautiful book includes more than 350 photographs, sketches and architectural plans, and in-depth 'walk throughs' of over 15 key projects including the Central Pavilion in the Giardini of the Venice Biennale, the Olivetti Showroom in St. Mark's Square in Venice, the Canova Museum, and the Brion Cemetery, among others. A cult figure with mass appeal, Scarpa was heralded by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn and his work is more relevant now than ever.
