Andrea Palladio’s The Four Books of Architecture opened Jefferson’s eyes to the beauty and majesty of classical architecture. It led him to determine that Palladio’s illustrations and design principles should be the guide for the architecture of the new nation. Using many images, Calder Loth will explore how Palladio’s spirit permeates the forms and details of Jefferson’s works and those of his disciples, and provides lessons for us today.
Please join our Chapter for an evening of networking with members, a brief general meeting, and a lecture on Andrea Palladio & Thomas Jefferson by Calder Loth.
Calder Loth is the Senior Architectural Historian for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the Co-President of the Center for Palladian Studies in America. He was the recipient of the 2010 Institute of Classical Architecture and Art Board of Directors’ Honor Award.
