The function of form: meaning in the work of Carlo Scarpa

dc.creatorSalazar, Dunia V.
dc.description.abstractArchitecture does not exist without functional and aesthetic conditions being resolved. While this is easy to state, an examination of the works of any practicing architect will reveal the effort necessary to incorporate the various layers of meaning with the range of functional needs of buildings. This thesis will examine the work of Carlo Scarpa, and in particular the display of two statues, two Madonnas, at the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona. The researcher sets out to find evidence to support her belief that Scarpa's work contents meaning that is revealed through even the smallest of his designs.
