 Classical Tuscan Order   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The Tuscan Order was rarely used in later Roman architecture, but it is referred to by Vitruvius, and Palladio devotes a chapter to it, as he does to each of the orders.
Palladio recommends that its plainness make it suitable for use in buildings of utilitarian function, such as farm buildings, and specifically states that the ratio of height to width in the intervals between the pillars, mean that it is possible to manoeuvre a farm wagon between them.
However, in later years Adam was to renounce its use, declaring in 1774: "as to the Tuscan, it is, in fact, no more than a bad and imperfect Doric," and it cannot be said that even at the start of Adam's career, it frequently features in his designs.
