Carlo Scarpa, architect : intervening with history by Carlo Scarpa( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1953 and 1978 the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa produced an incredibly varied range of works that challenge our notions of what modern architecture might be. Foremost in that work was the need to reconcile a wholehearted embrace of the new with the longstanding traditions of local craft and of universal practice to create an architecture that would clearly express its own machine-driven times without abandoning the psychic and sensual forces of place, materiality, and memory." "Carlo Scarpa, Architect: Intervening with History illustrates, through abundant reproductions of Scarpa's drawings, the ways the architect created a dialogue with light, space, and architecture within the historic fabric of Italian cities. Presenting these projects as they exist today, the patient eye of contemporary photographer Guido Guidi deepens our understanding of this timely approach to architectural dialogue."--Jacket
Carlo Scarpa by Robert McCarter( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Italian architect Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is a unique figure in the Modern movement and even today his work continues to challenge accepted notions of modern architecture. While intensely revered as an architect of immense detail and consideration, no comprehensive monograph has been produced on this scale to date - nothing that approaches the breadth and depth covered by this title. With an illuminating text by Robert McCarter, who has developed a reputation and following for his meticulously researched, experentially-based, and jargon-free accounts of key figures in Modern architecture, this book provides the definitive study of Scarpa's many accomplishments, including such works at the Canova Museum, the Castelvechhio Museum and the Brion Cemetery, among others
Carlo Scarpa by Sergio Los( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Scarpa was a virtuoso of light, a master of detail, a connoisseur of materials. In his lifetime he was often dismissed as merely an artist who also wanted to build. Today, however, it is clear that his own brand of Modernism made him one of the 20th-century architectural greats. Scarpa taught at the Venice architectural faculty. Over a period of three decades he designed exhibitions in London, Paris, Rome and Milan, and regularly for the Biennale in Venice, his native city. The major contributions to his fame, though, were museum projects such as the Gipsoteca Canoviana in Possagno and the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona. (Quelle: www.goodreads.com)

Form + structure : the organisation of interior space by Graeme Brooker( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Scarpa : Museo Canoviano, Possagno by Judith Carmel-Arthur( Book )

Carlo Scarpa : Venini, 1932-1947 by Marino Barovier( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A splendid catalogue devoted to the work of an artist who was responsible for some of the most original glass artworks in art history. Through around 300 works, documents, and original drawings from private collections and museums from all over the world, this important volume reconstructs the work and life of Carlo Scarpa from the very beginnings of his career when he worked as artistic director for the Venini glassworks, between 1932 and 1947. It is no coincidence that Scarpa's glasswork can be organized into no less than thirty distinct styles, differentiated by the technique of execution and the glass construction method used. We need only think of the corrosi (corroded), in which the material is attacked and eaten into by sawdust soaked in hydrofluoric acid."--Publisher's website

Carlo Scarpa : la tomba Brion San Vito d'Altivole by Klaus Kinold( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Venetian artist Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) was one of the outstanding architects of the twentieth century, and at the same time a convinced lone wolf who saw his discipline as a form of art based on craftsmanship. In addition to buildings for museums in Venice, Florence and Verona his principal works also include the tomb of the businessman Giuseppe Brion in San Vito d'Altivole (Treviso). Here Carlo Scarpa had complete freedom to orchestrate a grand idea across an area of 2,200 square metres. Water, earth, light and air fuse with the buildings in fair-faced concrete (burial place, pavilion and chapel) to create a magnificent gesamtkunstwerk that invites the visitor to meditation. Seven years after the completion of the 'Tomba Brion', the famous Munich photographer of architecture Klaus Kinold had the opportunity to examine this remarkable tomb in photographs. His carefully considered pictures in black and white or subtle colours describe an other-worldly place which translates our ideas of growth and decay in an expansively constructed symbolism

Carlo Scarpa by Gian Luigi Calderone( Visual )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scarpa's unique ability to successfully incorporate his own designs into historical renovation projects is shown at several locations, including the 15th-century Castelvecchio in Verona and Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo. Brion Memorial--one of the great enigmas of modern architecture--is examined as a hybrid of classical, abstract, and Japanese architectural forms. In Venice, craftsmen and fellow architects fondly remember Scarpa's endless experimentation with color and textures."--Container
