    "The studio focuses on the work of the most enigmatic and famous Venetian architect - Carlo Scarpa, and his heritage in Venice."
    Carlo Scarpa is a unique figure among the modern architects of the 20th century. Born and raised in Venice and the Veneto region, Scarpa transformed the ancient city and sites in the wider area by weaving the most modern of spatial conceptions into their material fabric. In his architecture and curatorial work, he joined different worlds, revised lost crafts, paying particular attention to place, time, ritual, detail and water, including the experience of the user to a degree rarely found elsewhere in modern architecture. At the same time he introduced entirely new structures, construction and materials in sensitive historic contexts. Our contemporary challenges related to climate change, globalisation, tourism and migration, and the sustainability of our historic urban environments can greatly benefit from Scarpa's radical thinking and imaginative interventions.
    PROGRAMME OUTCOME
    • This studio will explore the architecture and art of display of Scarpa, and their relationship to his native city, Venice.
    • You will visit the Venice Architecture Biennale, world's most prestigious exhibition. Tickets are included in the programme.
    • All participants receive the certificate from The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, number 1 in the world in 2019 for Architecture / Built Environment Subjects in the renowned QS World Rankings.
