Location: Yale School of Architecture, New Haven, Connecticut
Year: 2012

“Palladio Virtuel” presents the critical work of one architect, Peter Eisenman, produced by looking at the work of another. It is little interested in the accepted narrative, record, dates, facts, or whatever historical “truth” exists about Andrea Palladio, but rather is a rereading of Palladio that sheds new light on both historical and contemporary architecture through in-depth analyses of the drawings Palladio made for his I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura (The Four Books of Architecture, 1570). Conceptual models and analytic drawings are shown within an installation that transforms the Yale Architecture Gallery with the poché of Palladio’s unbuilt Palazzo Della Torre.
