JOSEF HOFFMANN - CARLO SCARPA
On the Sublime in Architecture
Mon, 29.05.2006–Sun, 29.10.2006
Josef Hoffmann Museum, Brtnice, Czech Republic
Early on in his career, the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa (died 1978) was impressed by the work of Josef Hoffmann. Later
he confessed that Hoffmann was the architect whose work he knew best and appreciated most. The extent to which Scarpas
architectureoften called the special path to modernity was actually influenced by his great predecessor
is the subject of this exhibition.
