Palladian Design: The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected

'Palladian Design: The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected', which ran from September 2015 to January 2016, introduced Andrea Palladio's design principles and explored how they have been interpreted, copied and re-imagined across time and continents from his death in 1580 right up to the present day.

Designed by Caruso St John this exhibition at the RIBA explored how British architects such as Inigo Jones and Lord Burlington turned Palladianism into a national style and how 20th and 21st century architects have reinterpreted Palladio’s design principles for contemporary use in unexpected ways.

Please browse through some of the fantastic Palladian images that form part of the RIBApix collection.
