Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978) was never fully appreciated during his lifetime. Instead, his work was dismissed as being "just" art, and only after his death did people begin to understand the exceptional quality of his oeuvre. This book shows the development of his individual architectural language by linking aspects of the arts with architecture. From his sensitive consideration of the urban context, to the composition of stunning details; the author manages to give the reader an insight into this outstanding architect's work. In particular, Scarpa's exhibition designs illustrate his extensive knowledge of materials and ability to solve complex structural problems. Meanwhile, Scarpa designs like the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona have become a Mecca for those seeking the ultimate refinement in exhibition design and elegant restoration.

The author:
Sergio Los (b. 1934) studied architecture in Venice. He worked in the office of Carlo Scarpa from 1964–1970, gaining deep insights into various projects and Scarpa's working methods. In 1967 he wrote the first monograph on Scarpa, the first of his many books, and from 1968 taught at the Faculty of Architecture at Venice University, while running an architectural practice with Natasha F. Pulitzer in Venice, Padua and Milan.
