Architecture and Mathematics in Palladio’s Century: A Tribute to Carl and Sally Gable

Guest Editor: Stephen R. Wassell, Department of Mathematics, Hollins University


Palladio portrait

In 1989 Mr. and Mrs. Carl I. Gable purchased Palladio’s Villa Cornaro, becoming only the sixth family to occupy the villa since its construction in the 1550s. With the sale of the villa in 2017, Carl and Sally have closed a chapter on their Palladian adventure, and this special issue of the NNJ is in honor of their 28 years of truly exemplary stewardship.
