DESCRIPTION: The Palladian Palazzo is a contemporary design proposal for the Grand Canal in Venice. The three-story facade features a piano noble and was designed using the classical language of architecture. The design was also influenced by works of the architect Andrea Palladio. Precedents studied that influenced the composition of the facade were Palladio’s Palazzo Valmarana and Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza, Italy.
