The Garden of Carlo Scarpa

The Back Garden of the Querini Stampalia Foundation, Venice | Courtesy © Fondazione Querini Stampalia


The renovation works by Scarpa are based on a balanced combination of old and new elements, as well as on a great workmanship of the materials. Water is the main character: it enters from the channel which the Palace overlooks through water gates along the inner walls. It is located in the garden, in a capacious many-leveled copper basin made of cement and mosaic and in a little channel with two labyrinths sculpted in alabaster and Istrian stone by the sides.
