Querini Stampalia Foundation modern-landscape

Querini Stampalia Foundation

In the early 1960s architect Carlo Scarpa transformed the ground floor and courtyard of the Palazzo Querini Stampalia into the Querini Stampalia Foundation, a major cultural complex in Venice, Italy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

One more water element is found in the courtyard: a linear trough that visitors encounter immediately when walking outside. The fountain is perpendicular to the concrete stripes in the hall, the canal and the entrance walkway. While the overall movement is from front to back — canal to courtyard — these perpendicular pieces help make the movement more meandering than direct. Like the square pool, the fountain is covered in lily pads, but instead of a metal enclosure it is all concrete.
