The 2012–13 season at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery opens on August
20, 2012, with Palladio Virtuel. The exhibition presents a groundbreaking new analysis
of the work of Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio by Peter Eisenman, renowned
New York architect and Charles Gwathmey Professor in Practice at Yale. It represents
the culmination of ten years of study of Palladio’s villas by Eisenman, adding an
important contribution to the sixteenth-century master’s already robust legacy.
Palladio Virtuel has been conceived and designed by Eisenman and Yale School
of Architecture critic Matthew Roman. Focusing on twenty villas, it proposes a reading
of the buildings that undermines the traditional view of Palladio’s architecture as founded
on ideal forms.
The exhibition remains on view at the School of Architecture Gallery through
October 27, 2012.
