In the city of Florence, Italy, in 1418, a competition was announced to design the dome for the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral, a proposed dome which was considered all but impossible to build. Of the many plans submitted, the one offered by goldsmith and clock maker Filippo Brunelleschi stood out, and he then spent the next twehty-eight years solving the puzzle of the dome's construction and in the process reinvented the field of architecture.… (més)

Very interesting. It focuses more on the dome, and the plans, structures, and tools developed to raise it, than on the feuds and rivalries Brunelleschi dealt with (and sometimes created) during the building - I prefer it that way, stories like this sometimes read more like gossip magazines than history, science, or (in this case) architecture. This may be because there's not a huge amount of info on Brunelleschi's life - despite contemporary and near-contemporary biographies, each author covered only what he thought important and ignored or skimmed over matters that today's historians and architects would really like to know about, such as the details of Brunelleschi's machines, or the lighting system inside the dome, or some of the trouble he got into. I learned a little about the times (it's a period I'm fairly familiar with) and a lot about the structures and methods that make the dome unique. Worth reading, and I'll be looking for more by this author. ( )

An interesting biography of Filippo Brunelleschi, including the design and construction of the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral in Florence, as well as the design and building of some pretty impressive construction machinery.

The book could have done with more architectural diagrams and explanations, but I suppose if you want that much detail you can look it up somewhere else. ( )

This is a fascinating book that I could hardly put down. It's a well researched book about the architect and builder of the dome of the Florence duomo. But it's so much more than that - filled with interesting tales about life in Florence in the 1400s, facts about the construction methods and brilliance of Brunelleschi as he overcame politics and enemies to succeed in the building the most amazing dome in history.

A contemporary of DaVinci and Donatello and others, he invented machines, he solved engineering feats that were decades ahead of others. While stuffed with information, it never reads like a dry history book - in fact I found myself reading aloud to my husband all through the book. "Listen to this!"
Highly recommend. ( )

A good book on historical context about Santa Maria Del Fiore and Brunelleschi. My favourite chapter was the second chapter, where Brunelleschi went to Rome.

Architects Leon Battista Alberti, Michaelango, Antonio Filarete followed Filippo's footsteps.

I would recommend this book if you are bored reading technical, complex books for a break

Deus Vult,
Gottfried
