Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0262031175, Hardcover)

Carlo Scarpa (1902-1978) belongs to the generation of Italian architects working in a period when political conditions placed severe restrictions on architectural expression. Yet Scarpa's achievements surpassed anything else being done in Italy between the wars and exemplified the best work done in the "Rationalist" tradition. This book considers the full spectrum of Scarpa's work, concentrating especially on his museum projects. It closely follows Scarpa's complex, multidimensional personality, covering the vicissitudes of his career, his ideas and their relationship to those of the modern masters, his cultural milieu, and his unique architectural contribution, which is imbued with a profound feeling for craft.

Over 360 black and white and full color drawings and photographs of Scarpa's built works are integrated with plans and process drawings in a way that provides an experiential as well as formal understanding of the projects.

Maria Antonietta Crippa teaches drawing and the restoration at the Milan Politecnico, and the History of Architecture at the Milan Institute of Design.
