This book summarizes what is known today about the design procedures and methodology of Andrea Palladio, arguably the most influential Renaissance architect. Even when Modernism dimmed interest in the work of classical architects, Palladio's opus never ceased to attract attention. This book sets Pallado in his contemporary context, discusses the theory of the orders, proportions, space composition, façade design, and presents this material in a way accessible to practicing architects and students, so that the ideas can be applied in their architectural work. 200 illus.
