Carlo Scarpa was a true master of detail and it clearly showed in his work.
At the time of his death in 1978 at the age of 72, Carlo Scarpa was at the height of his fame and influence. His buildings and projects are still being studied by architects and students throughout the world, and his style has become a model for architects wishing to revive craft and luscious materials in the contemporary manner. Yet Carlo Scarpa remains an enigmatic character in the history of modern architecture and design. His work does not submit easily to explanation and analysis, despite attempts by numerous architects and historians.
I have been fortunate enough to visit all of these stairs by Carlo Scarpa… enjoy!
