Homage to Palladio’s Villa Cornaro by Fumihiko Maki Photo: Pino Guidolotti
Palladio is arguably the most influential architect in the Western world; but that influence is felt in many unexpected forms, as each generation and society has taken something different from their encounters with his work. Chaired by Professor Mark Swenarton, exhibition co-curator Professor Howard Burns outlines the innovations Palladio made to the discipline of architecture that allowed it to become so influential; Sir Richard MacCormac RA reflects on the ambiguity of influence in creative activity; while Peter de Bolla discusses the phenomenon of influence itself.
