The Pavilion on the Water

The Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) was a great admirer of Japanese culture and architecture. All his designs display a Japanese eye for craftsmanship and passion for materials. Using interviews with former colleagues, Scarpa’s son and Japanese experts, The Pavilion on the Water shows the similarities between Scarpa’s designs – among them the Tombe Brion and the Olivetti showroom – and Japanese masterpieces. An exceptionally beautiful film as a search for the essence of beauty in architecture by one of the greatest designers of the twentieth century.
