Carlo Scarpa: The Forgotten Master

Carlo Scarpa was endearingly called “Professor” and ironically, I have learned a great deal from his teachings, his drawings, and his work. His admiration for how the passage of time and nature are intertwined is to be revered. Perhaps, because he was a Venetian, Scarpa was extremely thoughtful in the study of water, the landscape and ground plane, and it’s influences on architecture. – Dean Ober

A dream job for this structural engineer

When I was a kid, I knew that I was destined to be a structural engineer.  I was the one kid on my block with the largest Lego set who enjoyed building structures out of them and determining best ways to construct them. In high school, during one of my physics classes, the teacher taught us that a truss is an assembly of beams that creates a strong rigid structure. - Robert Zygmunt
