To a degree unmatched by any other Modern architect, Scarpa stood in two worlds, the ancient and the modern, and his architecture, so representative of time and place, is particularly shaped by the experience of the inhabitant.
To this end, McCarter's exploration of Scarpa's works is developed through analysis of process and design as well through tailor-made experiential 'walk-throughs' of many critical projects. For Scarpa, only a rich appreciation of a region's history and culture could lend an architect the ability to design for a particular place.
Robert McCarter is the author of an important monography on Carlo Scarpa’s work published by Phaidon in 2013.
In the lecture at Querini Stampalia palace he reads in particular the contribution of Scarpa’s work in creating a special atmosphere in his interior spaces dealing with the magnificent use of light and shadow, water and reflection, colour and vibration, with reference to the legacy of Venetian and oriental traditional architecture.
