Jardin des Pins at Fontainebleau
This architecture is called Jardin des Pins at Fontainebleau, this piece was created in 1565. You can still see the architecture located at Fontainebleau in France. This work was one of Francesco's earliest works which includes both sculpture and architecture techniques. He was inspired by the artistic drought in Rome, Italy which caused him to build this piece. This work focuses on classicism with its symmetry and detail in the palace. I find this piece interesting since it seems too complex to have been one of his first projects. Also he did more painting than he did architecture so it's interesting that he started with this.
