Venetian Architecture and the heritage of Carlo Scarpa in collaboration with The Bartlett School of Architecture.
The studio focuses on the work of the most enigmatic and famous Venetian architect - Carlo Scarpa, and his heritage in Venice.

'
If Carlo Scarpa was not a Venetian he would not have mastered the art of layering, cascading and channelling space'. Sophia Psarra
Carlo Scarpa is a unique figure among the modern architects of the 20th century. Born and raised in Venice and the Veneto region, Scarpa transformed the ancient city and sites in the wider area by weaving the most modern of spatial conceptions into their material fabric. In his architecture and curatorial work, he joined different worlds, revised lost crafts, paying particular attention to place, time, ritual, detail and water, including the experience of the user to a degree rarely found elsewhere in modern architecture. At the same time he introduced entirely new structures, construction and materials in sensitive historic contexts. Our contemporary challenges related to climate change, globalisation, tourism and migration, and the sustainability of our historic urban environments can greatly benefit from Scarpa's radical thinking and imaginative interventions.
