Harmonic Proportion and Palladio's "Quattro Libri"

A systematic, quantitative analysis of all the plans in Book II of the Quattro libri is carried out to discover to what extent musical harmonic ratios were an important principle behind Palladio9s ground plans, and shows that PalladIO did indeed have a definite preference for numbers which can be related in ratios corresponding to the standard musical intervals.

A general theory of proportion is presented and applied to proportional systems based on the golden mean, root 2, and root 3. These proportions are shown to be related to regular star polygons and to
