Palladianism, an architecture style that transforms the scene

Palladianism is an architecture style with design influences from Greek and Roman building design principles. If you where to pick one word to describe Palladianism, it would have to be symmetry.

Characterised by Classical forms, symmetry, and strict proportion, the exteriors of Palladian buildings were often austere. Inside, however, elaborate decoration, gilding and ornamentation created a lavish, opulent environment.
