Description

Winner, IPPY Silver Award in Architecture
Finalist, 2016 Foreword Indies Award in Architecture

An intimate journey through the remarkable Venetian urban landscape, this book reveals the architectural features that contribute to the incredulity of the beautiful city from the mysterious sotoporteghi to the complexity of Carlo Scarpa's "immaculate detailing." Evocative photographs complement the personal reveries contributed by 36 notable international architects and architectural writers who have been inspired by the city and share in her wonder. Included are personal reflections from Tadao Ando, James Biber, Mario Botta, Michele De Lucchi, Massimiliano Fuksas, Robert McCarter, Richard Murphy, Witold Rybczynski, Annabelle Selldorf, and Thomas Woltz.

Review quote

"Residents of 14th century Venice would still recognize their city today. Venice was built to fit into her liquid environment, at the same time fully respecting the needs of her inhabitants. Dream of Venice Architecture is a heartfelt invitation to learn what Venice can still teach us today about humane architecture." --Iris Loredana, author, La Venessiana
