GOD IS IN THE DETAILS

CARLO SCARPA
(1906-1978)
 
It is always amazing to me why I'm inherently drawn to certain things. Carlo Scarpa's iconic architecture is no exception. I was not aware of the fact that Scarpa initially shied away from architecture. He, in fact, preferred to practice interior design and industrial design and never actually completed the architectural profession's educational requirements. He ultimately ended up practicing the entirety of his career with no license. Scarpa's style was absolutely unique. His attention to the details in his architectural masterpieces is riveting. For Carlo Scarpa, God was indeed in the details.
