Carlo Scarpa, Casa Tabarelli. “Inside, the house is divided horizontally, and these exterior walls are continuations of the walls inside. It’s a very simple yet difficult layout. You can go all around the interior in a circle, it’s really interesting, and a really radical work of art. My favorite thing, though, is the atmosphere inside the house — everything tells a story. You have the vision of the design entrepreneur and producer who commissioned it, and all his friends’ works coming together, like a Duchamp sculpture next to original Alvar Aalto furniture.”
