Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) was an Italian Renaissance architect. The city of Vicenza (Veneto, Italy) with its 23 buildings designed by Palladio and 24 Palladian villas are listed by UNESCO a World Heritage site. He wrote the book The Four Books on Architecture, published in Venice in 1570. Palladio was influenced by Roman and Greek Architecture, primarily by Vitruvius (80 BC – 15 BC). He is well known in the past by applying Golden Ratio in Architecture, especially in length/width ratio and he made the Theory of proportions in Architecture.
The Golden Ratio is strongly connect with Fibonacci numbers and has applied in the Nature, but also in mathematics, geometry, art and architecture. It is a special number approximately equal to 1.618. The Golden Angle is that proportion in the circle. It is one of the optimal angles for light capture and Phyllotaxis and has influence to Biophilia and Biophilic Design.
Nenad Miloradovic, the author of Neolepenism architecture visited the city of Vicenza in Jun of 2018. He spent a few days for introduce to his work. It was visited Palladio’s museum, Basilica Palladiana, Theatro Olympico, Villa Rotonda and Corso Palladio.
