Principles of Renaissance Architecture Francesco Cappellari UF F09 Renaissance architecture has its roots in three fundamental aspects of the architecture of the XV Century: 1. The deep study of classical ancient models as a way to develop a critical type of theoretical research. The ancient constructions that were being rediscovered, were analyzed to gain new kn owledge that was utilized to create new models and not to imitate the past. 2. The birth of two distinct roles that were previously carried out by one person: a. The figure of the designer and theoretician b. The one of the architect and builder The creation of these two professional figures, permits each professional to concentrate in his own field obtaining better results. 3. The use of perspective Perspective provides a mechanism of control by anticipating the final design solution by facilitating the organization of the various parts in relation to the whole. Leon Battista Alberti
