Description

"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

"Several books have been published on [Scarpa's] 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... The definitive study of Scarpa's many accomplishments."--MrsD-Daily.com
