dc.descriptionFrontal view of a horizontal window; Arrigo Rudi completed the building after Scarpa's death. "The existing building, of little value, was completely absorbed by the new construction. The elevation is drawn on two parallel planes: one, a load-bearing wall, has a doorway and carvings in the red stone of Verona; the other, recessed, is in glazed panels, revealing an impatience with conventional work, almost to the point of challenging functionality. However, the care taken with the decoration gives a dazzling gloss to this purposelessness, suggesting new reflections on the relationship between use and uselessness, between function and ornament." - Maria Antonietta Crippa, Marina Loffi Randolin, ed. Carlo Scarpa: Theory Design Projects. p74. Source: Great Buildings Collection; http://www.greatbuildings.com (accessed 7/16/2010)en_US
