Carlo Scarpa: Layers

Scarpa: Schultz, A.
Carlo Scarpa's layered architecture makes visible the process of becoming and the time-related sedimentation of material and meanings. This book examines Scarpa's fields of influence and intellectual roots and puts them in perspective with former theories and their interpretation of architecture as layered.

Carlo Scarpa, Castelvecchio, Verona: Museo di Castelvecchio, Verona

Scarpa C
The Castelvecchio in Verona is the most perfectly resolved of Scarpa's works and today remain "outrageously" well pre-served. It is therefore unsurprising that a photographer-artist such as Richard Bryant should have been attracted by teh extraordinary compositional, spatial and luminous harmony of Castelvecchio.

Corbusier: Janson, A. Krohn C
If there is one building by Le Corbusier that represents a synthesis of his basic concepts it is certainly the Unite d'habitation built in Marseille.

Architecture as Philosophy, The Works of Imre Makovecz: The Work of Imre Makovecz

Makovecz: Gerle, Janos
Aims to show that the commentators who first brought Makovecz's work to the West presented him as a rebel against the communist system, rather than seeing his battle against a larger enemy: impersonal intelligence. This book seeks to show him to be a highly articulate architectural philosopher, conversant with a range of international sources.
