and the HERITAGE
of CARLO SCARPA
The studio focuses on the work of the most enigmatic and famous Venetian architect - Carlo Scarpa, and his heritage in Venice. Carlo Scarpa is a unique figure among the modern architects of the 20th century. Born in Venice and and raised in the Veneto region, Scarpa transformed Venice 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, water and the inclusion of the user's experience to a degree rarely found elsewhere in modern architecture. At the same time, he introduced entirely new structures, construction methods and materials into sensitive historic contexts. Our contemporary challenges of climate change, globalisation, tourism, migration and the sustainability of our historic urban environments can greatly benefit from Scarpa's radical thinking and imaginative interventions.
