Palladian

(1508–1586)
A style named after Andrea Palladio, an Italian Renaissance architect, whose Four Books of Architecture set out the classic orders in detail, establishing the proportions between the various components in each one. Palladio studied the Roman architect Vitruvius and the laws of harmonic proportions. His villas were an inspiration for many of the later country houses, especially in England.
