BRUNELLESCHI: Pazzi Chapel (Santa Croce, Florence) begun1441. Filippo Brunelleschi designed the Pazzi chapel as a perfect geometrical space with harmonious proportions. He could achieve this result by including in his project-plan the knowledge gained during his stay in Rome when he focused primarily on measuring ancient buildings, for instance the Pantheon.
Florence convent for nuns dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene ‘of the Penitents’ (and founded in 1257 no less!) In 1442 it was given to the Cistercians and between 1481 and 1500 it was rebuilt to the design of Giuliano da Sangallo (a good mate of Michelangelo’s) who also did the cloister you see in my photo.
