Carlo Scarpa

I have been writing an essay about Carlo Scarpa, the Italian designer and architect, whose museum design work in historic buildings is the benchmark on which all other designers are judged.  I had high expectations for seeing his work, which is mainly in the Veneto region (Venice, Verona).  His work exceeded my expectations.  I'll write more, or share parts of the essay later. But I wanted, much belatedly, to share these images from what I think is his masterpiece, the Castelvecchio museum in Verona.
