CARLO SCARPA Iconic Architect – A Collectible Coffee Table Book
Just a beautiful book that immortalises the late Italian architect mastermind, Carlo Scarpa (2 June 1906 – 28 November 1978). A quintessential Venetian and an influential architect famed for his idiosyncratic style and visceral approach to, and application of, materials while amalgamating time-honoured crafts and contemporary manufacturing processes, Carlo Scarpa was a powerful architectural force in producing iconic projects that are all-memorable, all-distinguishing. A rare find with text in English, French and Dutch, this coffee table book is a wonderful collector’s piece for architects, architectural connoisseurs and architectural enthusiasts. A luxurious and magnificent book, every double-page spread of this commemorative marvel has at least one, if not two, photos – a superbly apropos layout for an architecture statement piece that pays deserving homage to virtuoso Carlo Scarpa. Flaunting a scintillating gold-etched cover, its text is written by Sergio Los while a plethora of photographs of Scarpa's buildings and projects are captured by Klaus Frahm. Pristine condition. Devoid of markings and dog ears. Every page of this paperback is printed on 100% chlorine-free bleached paper of high-quality, thick-grammage dense art paper. Almost impossible to get a hold of, this collectible comprises 169 pages. It measures a visible 30 cm x 22.5 cm size that stands out in any home, office or hospitality space.
