Lecture: The Architecture of Andrea Palladio

January 14th, 2011

On Friday, January 14, Victor Deupi, architectural designer, teacher, and writer, presents “The Architecture of Andrea Palladio” as part of the Essex Library’s Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series. Palladio, a 16th -century Venetian, is widely considered the single most influential figure in all of Western architecture. Buildings from the Redwood Library in Newport to Monticello pay homage to his classical designs.

Mr. Deupi’s illustrated presentation is from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Essex Meadows Auditorium on 30 Bokum Road in Essex. Admission is free; please call (860) 767-1560 to register.

Mr. Deupi earned his Masters and Ph.D. in architecture from Yale and the University of Pennsylvania respectively and his teaching credits include Notre Dame and the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture in London. Presently he is teaching design, history, and representation at Fairfield University and the New York Institute of Technology. He has written extensively about New Urbanism and the humanities underpinning the classical tradition. Mr. Deupi is also a watercolorist whose work has been exhibited here and abroad.

Now in its third year, the Centerbrook Architecture Series is hosted by the Essex Library and Centerbrook Architects.
