Sacred Geometry in architecture: Donato Bramante, Tempietto

This 6-minute video explores sacred geometry in the architecture of the Tempietto, c. 1502, San Pietro in Montorio, Rome. The video was created by Beth Harris and Steven Zucker.

Commissioned by King Ferdinand, the construction of this small temple probably started around 1510 under the design and direction of Donato Bramante. “More sculpture than building”, this architecturally significant temple was built on the spot of Saint Peter’s crucifixion. This small, round temple features a mix of classical references and elegant ratios and it is also considered to be the prototype of the basilica of San Pietro in the Vatican.
