Palladian Style Palladian architecture is derived from the villas of Andrea Palladio , the greatest architect of the Late Renaissance. Palladio, like famous artists generally, was followed by many successors who absorbed and worked in his style; these ranged from unoriginal imitators to artistic geniuses, the latter of whom applied old ideas in brilliant new ways. Interestingly, Palladio's greatest successors emerged primarily in England . D360 The most famous Palladian architect of the Neoclassical period is Britain's Robert Adam , who designed many fine country houses. 1 These mansions illustrate that while Palladian architecture shares certain basic features (derived from the villas of Palladio; see Renaissance Architecture ), it takes diverse forms . For instance, Adam's design for Osterley Park (see aerial view ) includes a classical gateway, corner towers, and a courtyard, none of which are found in any villa by Palladio.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
