Brion-Vega Cemetery

Carlo Scarpa

Venice, Italy

1972

A private walled family cemetery incorporating structures, water and complex landscaping. His final work, the architect himself is buried here

touch

All of Scarpa's work explores surfaces in a very sophisticated way. The cemetery uses stone, concrete, wood and various metals to provoke a hyper-aesthetic palette of sensations for both the eye and the skin. Knowing the extra degree of sensitivity often engendered by thoughts of mortality, he deftly invites the hands to browse the surfaces he presents.
