Vintage hardback coffee table book featuring the architectural work of Carlo Scarpa. By Bianca Albertini and Sandro Bagnoli, published in 1988. First edition, 229 pages.
"Unexpected solutions, playfulness, a formal elegance are all part of Carlo Scarpa's richly inventive approach to transforming sources, an approach that allowed him to create one of the most original decorative styles of this century. The work of this Venetian architect (1906-1978) has established him as a modern master, particularly in his regard for detail and ornament, the focus of this superbly illustrated book."
