Palladio’s work as embodied in the “Four Books” is a reflection of his passion for humanism. He has the ability to imagine how we will inhabit his enclosures, his rooms. He is able to embrace us with the places he makes, both on the interior and also in the garden.  The Four Books on Architecture show us how he accomplishes the magnificence of his structures.
