Poggio a Caiano

Poggio a Caiano is an Italian villa located about 9 kilometres from the city of Prato. The building began its life as a fortified house, but was bought up by Lorenzo de' Medici in 1473, and turned into renaissance villa. Work began in 1485 to the plans of architect Giuliano da Sangallo. The work was finished by Lorenzo’s second son, Giovanni, who later became pope Leo X. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the architects Giuseppe and Giovan Battista Ruggeri and Antonio Maria Ferri extended the villa, and major improvements to the gardens were carried out under the ownership of Maria Luisa of Spain. The villa was refurbished and used by Vittorio Emanuele II of Italy, and later donated to the state in 1919. It is now oped to the public.

The Manueline is the Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation of the first decades of the 16th century. This innovative style synthesizes aspects of Late Gothic architecture with influences of the Spanish Plateresque style, Mudéjar, Italian urban architecture, and Flemish elements. Later, it incorporated ornaments of the Italian Renaissance. It marks the transition from Late Gothic to Renaissance.

The old stock exchange in Copenhagen, Denmark. Completed in 1640 to a design by Lorentz and Hans van Steenwinckel the Younger (the former died during the planning of the building and the later had to take over where he left).

Very few monumental buildings were built in Norway from the outbreak of the black plague to the introduction of the industrial revolution, so there is little from the renaissance to show. But we have at least two buildings that are considered to be part of the renaissance architectural movement here. The manor house of Austraattborgen outside of Trondheim, Norway is one of them. Initially built 10th century, it was extensively redesigned and enlarged under the ownership of Ove Bjelke during the 17th century. This is also when the main building was raised. It is thought that work done under Bjekes watch was completed in around 1656.

The complex burned down in late 1916 and the current building is a reconstruction that was begun in 1919 and completed in 1961. The reconstruction was based on drawings and descriptions that been done by architect Lorentz Harboe Ree and art historian Fredrik Barbe Wallem a year before it burned down.
