Five centuries after his birth Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) remains the most significent figure in the history of Western architecture.
His exceptional buildings encapsulate the legacy of Italian Renaissance architectural practice while his celebrated treatise I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura ,in which he articulated his theory and understanding of architecture, has guaranteed his enduring influence.
Written by the leading authorities on the architect, Guido Beltramini and Howard Burns, the emphasis is on his buildings, his ideas and the people who played a part in their development. Palladio's drawings are shown in colour, with enlargements, to enable readers to explore his way of working.
