Venice Architecture Biennale starts this week. It is the best time to racapitulate architectural projects by master of masters Carlo Scarpa at Giardini, the main venue of the biennale exhibition which was directed by David Chipperfield this year.
Work of Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978) is notoriously linked to Venice. Despite this, his work at Giardini belongs to his lesser known projects constructed in the city. Including ticket kiosk and Giardino delle Sculture, both from 1952 and exhibition pavilion of Venezuela built between 1954 - 1956, the projects reflect his mastery of work with materials and details again.
