In celebration of Palladio’s remarkable achievements as a gifted civic architect, the ICA&CA has assembled a unique collection of Palladian inspired works of art and architecture. Curated from work by Institute members, the exhibit consists of sketches, drawings, watercolors, and new projects, both built and un-built, demonstrating the breadth of Palladio’s continuous influence in the United States and abroad. It is the aim of the exhibition to show that there is still a great deal to be learned from Palladio and that perhaps the most relevant aspects of his influence remain to be discovered.
