Andrea Palladio
b. 11-30-1508; Padua, Italy
d. 8-19-1580

Palladio, born Andrea di Pietro della Gondola, is considered one of the most influential architects in the history of Western architecture.

The Palladian style, named after him, adhered to classical Roman principles of well ordered space that provided harmony and calm.

His buildings feature symmetry based on a strict axial basis, Greek classic temple facades with pillars and pilasters, and the arch (Palladian window), characteristics that can be found in the work of Bulfinch in the US Capitol building and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

He was given the name Palladio by one of his appreciative aristocratic clients to connect his talent with the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena Palle.
