Araceli Mendez-Perspective Stage

September 30, 2009

When speaking about perspective in class,  I immediately thought of one of my Film Architecture lessons. The Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, Italy is a beautiful example of perspective. Although the theater was designed by Andrea Palladio, what I like about this building is the stage which was constructed by Vicenzo Scamozzi, who took over the project after Palladio’s death. The stage consists of 7 hallways that give the illusion that you are looking down long streets. It is absolutely gorgeous and looks very realistic.
