314. Verona. Castelvecchio-Cortile


Dear Terry,

Louis Kahn wrote a poem on Scarpa's architecture:

In the work of Carlo Scarpa
Beauty
the first sense
Art
the first word
Then Wonder
Then the inner realization of "Form"
the sense of the wholeness of inseparable elements
Design consults Nature
to give presence to the elements.
A work of art makes manifest the wholeness of "Form"
the symphony of the selected shapes of the elements
In the elements
the joint inspire ornament, its celebration.
The detail is the adoration of Nature

Sincerely
R
