Carlo Scarpa is an architect's architect - a master of composition and juxtaposition with a love of materials and craft

Carlo Scarpa is an architect's architect - a master of composition and juxtaposition with a love of materials and craft. Many coffee table books are filled with his drawings and photos of his projects, yet very few have made any attempt to dig under the surface. Anne-Catrin Schultz rises to the challenge of analyzing Scarpa's buildings and the architect himself - his Venetian context, his influences and how he worked. Her analysis and photos help us understand the method behind Scarpa's genius and let us see in a fresh light the works we thought we knew so well.

Layering describes the physical composition of layers defining space as well as the parallel presence of cultural referrals and formal associations imbedded in the physical layers. Scarpa's work is an embodiment of multidimensional layering and, at the same time, a focal point for architectural movements of his time that have stratification as their theme.

In recent decades, Carlo Scarpas relevance has been steadily on the rise. At a time when architects have to use existing city and building structures as a point of departure for their work, his oeuvre remains a source of inspiration.

In recent decades, Carlo Scarpa's relevance has been steadily on the rise. Buildings such as the Castelvecchio in Verona show us that architecture is capable of communicating its own history, has meaning, and develops a contemporary dynamic of its own. Scarpa's layered architecture makes visible the process of becoming and the time-related sedimentation of material and meanings.

This book does a terrific job focusing on several of Scarpa's notable projects and does so with detail including text descriptions, critiques, photographs, and architectural drawings. Excellent!
