La Rotonda, Vicenza, Italy - C.1550 - 1570

Architect: Andrea Palladio

Set on a hilltop on the outskirts of Vicenza this Pantheonic type Villa has Ionic porticoes on all four sides. One might suggest that it is �The Ultimate Belvedere�!

Palladio�s (whose real name, incidentally was Gondola) buildings and writings were, and still are hugely influential to Western Architecture. In England, Inigo Jones was the first to revive �Palladianism� with his �Queens House� in Greenwich, a model of which we have also made.

The model is made in plaster with additional detailing in etched brass and lead.

It set on a 23� diameter base with the great architect�s name in relief around the edge.

The model was created for the �Celebrating Palladio� exhibition in November 2008 in Pimlico, London.

A one of version, cast in red & blue was also created. Click here to see an image of that model with Tim �lurking� in the background.
