Part 2 Dissertation 2017

Carlo Scarpa’s approach to designing Brion cemetery was as a garden elevated from its surroundings, an island of meadows, pools and heavy enclosures amid a sea of fields. An inverted Venice for the dead. It’s a tranquil garden that articulates a vivid iconography of an idea of life and death in Veneto. This dissertation will examine this iconography by looking at the tools used to achieve it, water and light.
