Category: Architecture
Dream of Venice Architecture is an intimate journey through the remarkable Venetian urban landscape. A cadre of 36 notable international architects and architectural writers explore the elements that make Venice unique in the world. Dream of Venice Architecture reveals the features that contribute to incredulity of her beauty, from the mysterious sotoporteghi to the complexity of Carlo Scarpa's immaculate detailing. The book includes reveries from architects who have built in the city, been inspired by the city and share in her wonder, including Tadao Ando, Mario Botta, Annabelle Selldorf, Richard Murphy, and Massimiliano Fuksas. The introduction is by Richard J. Goy, the international authority on Venetian architecture. He bridges the chasm between the original muddy wilderness of the 5th century and the intrigue of the built environment. The compelling photographs are by the award-winning documentary filmmaker and photographer Riccardo De Cal, who portrays Venice as a living city. This is the second book in the Dream of Venice series. A portion of the proceeds from each book will be donated to Foundation Querini Stampalia to support their architectural programming in Venice.
