Sectional analysis of the Pazzi Chapel

Located with the grounds of the  Basilica di Santa Croce, the Pazzi chapel was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi at the behest of Andrea Pazzi. Construction began around 1441 and was not completed until the 1460s. Brunelleschi's design was based on simple geometrical forms, namely the square and the circle.
