Immortal Architecture?

Private cemetery designed by Italian architect Carlo Scarpa. I love the photos and the structures with the landscape.

The brief article in Wallpaper states that Scarpa himself is buried there. Pretty amazing monument to his work and life. Would seem to immortalize him, to an extent. Click through the slide show and you'll see some photos from a fashion shoot taken place there, as well, adding to the many juxtapositions to explore, including the sacred and the profane.
