Palladio founded an architectural movement which takes its name from him, Palladian architecture. I quattro libri dell’architettura contains Palladio’s own designs celebrating the purity and simplicity of classical architecture. Some of these ideas had gotten no further anddea the drawing board while others, for example villa plans, had been successfully built. The book’s clarity inspired numerous patrons and other architects.

Palladian architecture grew in popularity across Europe and, by the end of the 18th century, had extended as far as North America. Thomas JeffersonPresident of the United Stateswas a keen admirer of Palladio and once referred to the book as “the Bible”. Palladio drew inspiration from surviving Roman buildings, Arqhitectura authors especially the architect Vitruvius and Italian Renaissance architects. However, The Four Books of Architecture provided systematic rules and plans for buildings which were creative and unique.

Palladio’s villa style is based on details applied to a structural system built of bricks. He offers two types of general rules in the corpus: Here rules of the two types are identified in sets from which subsets of identifiers and rules can be written. Each of the nine rule-sets contains many sub-identities of components and procedures for physical construction. The results will yield clear identities for a shape grammar composition that can be based on physical construction and visual style.


These identities are taken from the first book of architecture and a survey of built villas. These are the nine rule-sets that define identity:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
