Overview

Thirteen leading historians look at the 18th century villa in its wider context in this stimulating architectural history. The role of Andrea Palladio (for whom the palladium window is named) is re-examined through the response of architects throughout the period to his work. The range of form, planning and sources of the villa is seen not only in Robert Adam's designs but also in the variations of the villa found in Edinburgh and Glasgow where it provided a balanced contrast between city and retreat.
