project: A revised and augmented edition of P H Sawyer's catalogue of Anglo-Saxon charters

"Peter Sawyer’s Anglo-Saxon Charters: an Annotated List and Bibliography was first published in 1968. It provided a comprehensive, systematic and accurate guide to the entire corpus of charters, and immediately transformed the study of the subject. Charters were previously known by their numbers in the great nineteenth-century editions by Kemble (KCD) and Birch (BCS); now they are invariably known by their number in ‘Sawyer’, e.g. S 876. The revision and updating of Sawyer’s catalogue began in the early 1990s. [read more]

project: Virtual Reconstruction of Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico

The Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza, Italy - still existent and well preserved - was built in 1580-85 for the local Accademia Olimpica (founded in 1556) on a plot provided by the city council. It was the first permanent theatre to be built in Europe since antiquity. The stage, which resembles a façade of a Renaissance palace, and the semi-oval sitting area were designed by the architect and founding member of the Accademia, Andrea Palladio (1508-80). He died soon after the work began; his son, Silla took over. [read more]

project: Virtual Recreation of Palladio’s Villa Rotonda

The Villa Rotonda, also known as Villa Capra or Villa Almerico-Valmarana, is one of the best known works by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (1508-80). It was built just outside Vicenza, Italy, in the countryside, as a retirement residence for the clergyman at the Vatican, Paolo Almerico. The work began in c. 1565/6. Although the villa was inhabited by 1569 it was still unfinished by the time of Almerico’s death in 1589. [read more]

project: 3D Reconstruction of the Unbuilt Project Pont destiné à réunir la France à l’Italie (1829) by Henri Labrouste

Henri Labrouste (1801-75) is best known as the architect of two important public buildings in Paris, both libraries. The Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève, completed in 1851, demonstrated Labrouste's unconventional use of classical elements, much disputed at the time, and his structural innovation of introducing an exposed iron frame. The Bibliothèque Nationale, completed in the year of his death, is renowned for its eclectic reading room reminiscent of a Seljuk mosque: a light, top-lit round space with slender cast-iron columns, which support a multitude of small domes.
