Title: Palladio's Influence in America
Author: Loth, Calder
Abstract: 2008 marks the 500th anniversary of Palladio's birth. We might ask why Americans should consider this to be a cause for celebration. Why should we be concerned about an Italian architect who lived so long ago and far away? As we shall see, however, this architect, whom the average American has never heard of, has had a profound impact on the architectural image of our country, even the city of Baltimore. But before we investigate his influence we should briefly explain what Palladio's career involved.
