PALLADIANA, Spring Issue, 2020

​Stella Maris Architecture, in collaboration with the artist Madison Brake, is honored to be published in Palladiana, the Journal of Center for Palladian Studies in America, the national organization devoted to the education and promotion of the legacy of Andrea Palladio, the renowned and universally influential architect of the Renaissance.

The article is third in a series devoted to the understanding of the fundamental principles of architecture, first by reflection of basic principles in nature, and finally, by reflection of the same principles in architecture, making reference to the Villa Emo by Palladio as a means of demonstration. It was fruitful year of collaboration with contemporary experts, study of the perennial wisdom of ancient times, and untiring efforts of a talented artist to make manifest these abstract principles.

BUILD Magazine, 2020

The following is an excerpt from the press release:
"United Kingdom, 2020– BUILD Magazine has announced winners of the 2020 Architecture Awards.
Now in its fifth year, BUILD’s Architecture Awards programme continues to be an annual cornerstone, highlighting the extraordinary work and expertise of Architects around the world. Despite a year defined by difficulty in all shapes and sizes, the architecture landscape has continued to tick along in the background. After all, Architects take a more macro perspective – with projects often taking years to see completion. Even when the entire business world settles to a quiet murmur, architecture (and design) continues on behind the scenes, creating, evolving and innovating."
