design Patrice Riboust, Senior Exhibition Designer, tells us about the design of the Renaissance exhibition space

Interior of Filippo Brunelleschi's Pazzi Chapel in Florence, Italy was referenced, in particular it informed the colour schemes chosen in the first three rooms of the exhibition.

 

San Miniato al Monte basilica in Florence was one of the renowned buildings used for inspiration.

 

Michelangelo's Laurentian Library c. 1524-34 was one of several Michelangelo spaces which were referenced.

 

This image of Michelangelo's David on display at the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence shows an example of Italian Museum scenography.

Andrea Palladio’s 'Teatro Olimpico' in Vicenza, Italy was referenced in the design of the 'Renaissance' Family Activity Room. In this theatre Palladio was able to distort perspective to create a spectacular street scene backdrop.
