a momentary vignette
Carlo Scarpa
June 2

Born on this day in 1906, the Italian architect and artist Carlo Scarpa was a controversial master of modern design. His departure from traditional Italian design is evident in the idiosyncratic yet powerful presence of his architectural works. He is perhaps best known for his works such as the Brion Cementery in Treviso and the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona which illustrate his unique ability to weave the built fragments of the past, into contemporary expressions of architecture and design.
