Celebrating the Joint 

The Rizzoli 1985 “Complete Works” landed in our hands as a marvel. Showing us how Scarpa’s studious, sensitive, and inventive designer’s eye could delicately marshal stone, brass, timber, and water. I still recall falling in love with the meticulous details, play of texture and the gorgeous coloured venetian plaster. His skill at weaving bold architectural interventions within old buildings was just brilliant. A true master. Here in Robert McCarter’s 2013 monograph, the essentials projects are handsomely and evocatively captured reminding us why Scarpa’s beautiful work and articulation of space remains so beguiling.
