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
