Editorial Reviews

Review

"The strength of the book is undeniably Burroughs's methodology and sources outside the scope of traditional architectural studies, and to this end Burroughs accomplishes his goal of writing something that will bridge the gap between practical examinations of Renaissance architecture and theory." Michelle Duran-McLure, University of Montevallo, H-Net

"...no one who studies the facades of Rome and Florence will have read more widely or pack his notes more intriguingly with the latest in cultural studies and architectural theory [than Burroughs]." Renaissance Quarterly

"...a provocative look at secular, mostly domestic, facades as cultural phenomena...at once logical and idiosyncratic, a combination that recalls the speed and serendipity of discourse around a seminar table." Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

"...Burrough's interpretive framework offers a welcome and stimulating reconsideration of many subjects." Sixteenth Century Journal, Andrew Hopkins, Villa I Tatti, Florence

Book Description

The architectural facade -- a crucial and ubiquitous element of traditional cityscapes -- addresses and enhances the space of the city, while displaying, or dissembling, interior arrangements. In this book, Charles Burroughs traces the development of the Italian Renaissnace palace facade as a cultural as well as architectural and spatial phenomenon, and as a new way of setting a limit to, and defining, a private sphere. The author draws on literary evidence as well as analyses of significant Renaissance buildings, noting the paucity of explicit discusion of the theme in an era of extensive architectural publishing.
