The 250 illustrations cover all 58 of his built works, including the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, the Olivetti showroom in Piazza San Marco in Venice, and the Brion Tomb in San Vito d'Altivole (Treviso). The book includes essays by leading architects and architectural critics, offering an extensive overview of Scarpa's life as well as interpretations of his architecture."--Jacket
Carlo Scarpa, architect : intervening with history by Carlo Scarpa( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 264 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 )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 231 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

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 138 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." --> z založnikove spletne strani

Carlo Scarpa by VIZ Production( Visual )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 91 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
