and why? 1. Fillipo Brunelleschi 2. Leon Battista Alberti 3. Andrea Palladio "Renaissance architects trained as Humanists to raise their status from labourer to artist. They wanted to create buildings that appealed to emotion and reason". I choose Brunelleschi's- Florence Cathedral. Its intricate and intimidating to me as a building. But more so I choose it because I would love to live in Florence for a while.
