Dream of Venice Architecture
Dream of Venice Architecture is a journey through the remarkable Venetian urban landscape. A cadre of architects and architectural writers explore the uncharacteristic elements that make Venice unique in the world. Often the first reaction to Venice is one of feeling overwhelmed by the astonishing beauty of her existence.
Dream of Venice Architecture reveals the features that contribute to incredulity, 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 the wonder.
The introduction is by Richard Goy, the international authority on Venetian architecture. He bridges the chasm between the original muddy wilderness of the 5th century and the opulence of the built environment.
