Brion Cemetery - Carlo Scarpa


  1. A breath-taking piece of architecture, this one. I remember prattling on at length about it in various architectural theory papers back at university. So many poetic moves in one project - so much depth.

    It's one of those places I am dying to visit, simply to dig the 'genius loci' and to see if the marvellous metaphor and hidden depths of the cemetery flow through in actuality as clearly as they do in drawn form and photograph.
