Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A pioneer of Italian Renaissance architecture, Filippo Brunelleschi is most famous for his daring and original ideas, among them the magnificent dome of Florence's famed Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral. This comprehensive book describes how he created the structure, construction concepts, and other inventions. 28 halftones, 18 line illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Brunelleschi was a diminutive man with big ideas who shaped the architecture of the Renaissance. In this reprint of the 1970 edition by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, Prager and Scaglia examine Brunelleschi's original works, especially the huge unsupported dome of the Santa Maria del Flore cathedral in Florence. They also examine the machines such as hoists and cranes he designed and built for construction. The authors include modern detailed illustrations of the structure of the dome, photographs of details, and Brunelleschi's own sketches of his dome and the machines he invented to build it.
