Villa Barbaro, 1557-8

Palladio's design for agricultural villas were functional, not the typical pleasure villas of other cities. By consolidating scattered buildings into one strong and cohesive unit, the villa could reflect harmony with its environment and proportion and symmetry in its design. Details of Villa Barbaro in Maser:
- tripartite plan
- temple pediment on central facade distinguishing main building from others
- 4 Ionic columns
