Summary

Palladio's loggia at the Basilica Palladiana can be regarded as one of the first parametric designs, because of his use of his arches as a constant and the distance between them as a variable, in order to conform to the grid of the original building. This project superimposes a third layer to the building and aims to shed light to Palladio's Parameters.
