Reviews - What do customers think about Carlo Scarpa--Layers?
definitely worth the money May 16, 2008
This book does a terrific job focusing on several of Scarpa's notable projects and does so with detail including text descriptions, critiques, photographs, and architectural drawings. Excellent!
A brilliant in-depth study Dec 7, 2007
Carlo Scarpa is an architect's architect - a master of composition and juxtaposition with a love of materials and craft. Many coffee table books are filled with his drawings and photos of his projects, yet very few have made any attempt to dig under the surface. Anne-Catrin Schultz rises to the challenge of analyzing Scarpa's buildings and the architect himself - his Venetian context, his influences and how he worked. Her analysis and photos help us understand the method behind Scarpa's genius and let us see in a fresh light the works we thought we knew so well. A wonderful example of true scholarship and a fitting tribute to one of the masters of 20th century architecture.
If the book ever came. . . . . Jul 20, 2007
I have not received this product yet so can't possibly review it. A VERY DISSATISFIED customer.
