A master of order and proportion, Andrea Palladio and his buildings have inspired architects and designers for centuries. In the 18th century, his ‘design rules’ ushered in a stylistic revolution setting in motion a wave of classical imitators and tributes. While in our own time architectural style has become ever more nuanced, many contemporary architects of all persuasions pay tribute to him, but why? Is there more to Palladio than style? Is there something more radical? Adam Caruso of Caruso St John chairs a discussion exploring the contemporary lessons of Palldio and his enduring legacy.
