Villa Giulia

This morning my architecture class visited Villa Giulia which is located outside the original city walls. Built in the 1550s for Pope Julius III, the main villa and gardens are an incredible example of Mannerist architecture. We walked around the gardens and drew the properties layout and mapped out the proportions. I decided to demonstrate the proportions and layout using a cross cut axonometric drawing which I later water colored in my apartment. I really enjoyed the Villa and will try to visit some other similar buildings in the near future.
