PALLADIO AND THE AMERICAN ARCHITECTURAL IMAGE A Lecture by Calder Loth
Andrea Palladio has had an immeasurable impact on our county's architectural image. His famous treatise, I Quattro Libri, has served as a textbook for generations of American architects. His designs for villas have influenced the appearance of countless American houses. Thomas Jefferson declared Palladio's treatise the "Bible." In his own works, Jefferson provided the nation with precedent-setting models based on Palladian principles. Finally, Palladio's restoration drawings of ancient Roman monuments became a primary source of inspiration for some of the most ambitious works of the "American Renaissance" of the late 19th and 20th centuries.
Calder Loth is Senior Architectural Historian of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and board member of the Center for Palladian Studies in America. His lecture will trace the hand of Palladio on two and a half centuries of American building.
