Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With this introduction to the work of Andrea Palladio (1508 1580), TASCHEN Basic Architecture series shines its spotlight on one of the most influential figures in the history of Western architecture. Palladios Villa Rotonda in Vicenza became the most famous building of its kind; it influenced many later designs and remains an important source of inspiration for todays architects. The Palladian style, distinguished by the typical Serlian windows, pillared faades resembling Roman temples, symmetrical floor plans, and elevations, was imported to other European countries and became widely known; in Great Britain it was one the important roots of 17th and 18th century architecture. In the 19th century, American architecture heavily referred to the style, as seen in, for example, Thomas Jefferson Monticello home.
