64th Course on Palladian Architecture
The Palladio Project: understanding functions, changing forms, transforming life
Vicenza + Veneto, 31 August - 6 September
coordinated by Guido Beltramini and Howard Burns

 

Since 1958, this now classic course has offered the opportunity to visit Palladio's major buildings. The 2022 edition will focus on the types and functional aspects of Palladio’s architecture in a fresh look at the subject.

The course consists of seven days of visits, lectures and workshops. The visits are organised as seminars inside the buildings, with the aid of dossiers illustrating Palladio's designs, his plans and sections for the architecture in question, and reference models. Classroom lectures deal with general themes of Palladio's overall production. In the workshop called the “Palladio Lab”, participants are asked to try out the different methods of investigation for themselves: how can we read a building by starting from its walls? What does the direct observation of an autograph Palladio drawing tell us?

The course is addressed to architectural historians, architects, engineers, art historians and anyone interested in learning about Palladio's buildings and their materials.
