Karl Lagerfeld: Casa Malaparte

In his gorgeous new book of photographs of the ideosyncratic Italian Modernist architectural masterpiece, Casa Malaparte, Karl Lagerfeld writes, "The 'Casa Malaparte' is a vision of a man with no visible influences. Built in the thirties, it has nothing in common with the Italian architecture of those days. It’s also untouched by the then so influential ideas of the Bauhaus—but it is still absolutely modern. There is no other house like this in the world. When he 'created' this house (and nobody knows what the architect Adalberto Libera exactly contributed to this project) he thought perhaps that this place should be the continued evidence of his love of the beauty of Capri and the mediterranean world. It was built for future times— whether they would like it or not. It’s a kind of inevitable inheritance. Nothing can befall this masterpiece whose deep sources are interior. Goodbye to any classic standard of houses and the way we are used to look at them."
