Fondazione Querini Stampalia

Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Architecture by Carlo Scarpa-4

The Italian architect Carlo Scarpa is one of the most enigmatic architects of all time. Scarpa is best known for his instinctive approach to materials, combining time-honored crafts with modern manufacturing processes. He was mainly influenced by the materials, landscape, and the history of Venetian culture, and Japan. Above and underneath are details from the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, a Venetian Palace which Scarpa renovated in 1963.
