Delightful and Informative 28 Mar. 2013
By knox2@clemson.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book fulfills a long-needed niche: a biography of one of the world's greatest architects-Andrea Palladio. For a person whose name and works are so widely known, the man himself has been elusive. Guido Beltramini, a noted Palladio (and Scarpa) scholar has done a fine job uncovering the obscure facets of Palladio's life. What emerges is how I always envisioned Palladio: creative, upbeat, gregarious, energetic and one of that rare breed of architects-one who is not afraid to jump right into the work at the construction site and get his hands dirty. The book itself is, physically, quite charming; small and intimate-the kind of book you want to keep on the tabletop or slip in your pocket to read over and over. i would recommend you read alongside or after the Beltramini book Franz Schulze's biography of Mies van der Rohe and Ada Louise Huxtable's biography of Frank Lloyd Wright and then sit back and enjoy the contemplation of architectural genius.
