    Description:

    Begun 1099, Santa Maria del Popolo was reconstructed by Baccio Pontelli and Andrea Bregno in 1472-1477, commissioned by the association of the Lombards of Rome, creating an excellent example of Italian Renaissance architecture. In 1655-1660 the facade was modified by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who was asked by Pope Alexander VII to update the Renaissance church to a more modern Baroque style.

    Description:

    Campanile and monastery buildings visible.

    [The cloister (1579-ca. 1650) is also attributed to Palladio.] In 1560 Palladio began a series of works in the city of Venice. His refectory (1560-1563) at the Benedictine monastery of S Giorgio Maggiore on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore is in every sense a monumental testimony to Palladio’s urge to create a style in the manner of Classical antiquity that was both severe and imposing. The unusually high-placed windows, like the dimensions of…

    Description:

    The column on the corner of Via della Consolata dates from 1835, erected in memory of the cholera epidemic which raged in the city.

    The basilica stands on the ruins of one of the corner towers of the ancient Roman city walls (Julia Augusta Taurinorum). The current Baroque church is the result of the radical reworking of the former Romanesque church of Sant'Andrea on the site. The only Romanesque structure left is the bell tower. The Baroque phase was begun in 1678 by Guarino Guarini. The…

    Description:

    The tower is 98.6 metres (323 ft) tall, and stands alone in a corner of St Mark’s Square, near the front of the basilica. It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a fluted brick square shaft, 12 metres (39 ft) wide on each side and 50 metres (160 ft) tall, above which is a loggia surrounding the belfry, housing five bells. The belfry is topped by a cube, alternate faces of which show the Lion of St. Mark and the female representation of Venice (la Giustizia: Justice). The tower is cappe…

    Description:

    Center circle is top of sunken rotunda with Napoleon’s tomb below. In 1676 he was commissioned to build the church of the Hôtel des Invalides, after Libéral Bruand, who designed the rest of the complex, failed to produce a satisfactory scheme. For this almost monastic establishment for disabled soldiers, Hardouin Mansart created a bipartite building: the first part [Église St-Louis], a nine-bay nave for the pensioners, has a barrel vault and side aisles with tribunes opening through flatt…

    Description:

    [The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica and popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre (Montmartre butte), the highest point in the city.] One of the more exotic variants on the Basilican form is Paul Abadie’s design for the Sacré-Coeur (1875-1919), Paris, which has a Greek-cross plan expressed in a Byzantine Revival style.

    Description:

    In 1645 Mansart was appointed by the queen, Anne of Austria, to add a church and palace to the convent of the Val-de-Grâce, which she frequently visited on retreat. For this project Mansart devised a highly imaginative scheme based on the Escorial in Spain, where Anne had spent her youth. His design for the church was original in many respects, with bell-towers flanking the nave and a projecting single-storey entrance portico, more reminiscent of his château frontispieces than of a convention…

For this almost monastic establishment for disabled soldiers, Hardouin Mansart created a bipartite building: the first part [Église St-Louis], a nine-bay nave for the pensioners, has a barrel vault and side aisles with tribunes opening through flattened arches, following 17th-century French models.

    Description:

    In 1862 Baltard was invited to design a new Parisian church, St Augustin, in which, for economy, an iron framework was used for the first time in a French church. The metal structure, made into a decorative feature, is readily apparent in the interior of the church and its lofty dome, while the masonry exterior combines an eclectic mix of Byzantine, Gothic and Baroque elements. To resolve the difficulties of the wedge-shaped site, bordered by two busy streets, Baltard placed the entrance at t…
