Book Pavilion’, entrance and Italian pavilion courtyard, Biennale, Venice, 1951-52 by Italian architect Carlo Scarpa. Scarpa (1906-1978) was a unique figure among second generation Modern architects - deeply embedded in the archaic and anachronistic culture of Venice, while also transforming the ancient city by weaving the most modern of spatial conceptions into its material fabric.
