More Carlo Scarpa

Our class was lucky enough to visit several Carlo Scarpa projects during our North field trip.  This was the first time I had seen any of his work, and what I liked about it was the sheer devotion to an overall architectural language in his projects as well as his attention to detail.  The first project we visited by him was his renovation of the Castelvecchio in Verona (see the previous post).  The following day we visited the Museum of sculptor Antonia Canova, and the Brion Cemetery, both of which he designed an addition.  One thing I appreciate about Carlo Scarpa is that he is well known for very few and yet very rich projects.  It shows that it is possible for quality and intensity to dominate quantity, although I’m sure that Scarpa poured his soul into these buildings.
