Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Steven Semes - Period Homes
“An extended meditation on the discrepancies between ideal form and physical realization. . . . Mitrovic correctly places the importance of Palladio in his formal design and not in verbal theories or issues outside the architecture itself.”
SirReadaLot.org
“Learning from Palladio sets Palladio in his context; discusses the theory of the orders, proportions, space composition, and facade design; and presents this material for practicing architects and students, so that the ideas can be applied in their architectural work today. Mitrovic's comprehensive Learning from Palladio reveals what architectural historians, practicing architects, and students can learn from Palladio today….his prediction that Palladio's classical architecture is the architecture of the future is daring in an academic book, and fascinating.”
Stephen R. Wassell - Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
“[A] significant and original contribution to the understanding of Palladio's design theory.”
