not an easy book
The Byzantine mosaics inside the chapel of Galla Placidia represent a lining attached but contrasting in richness of texture, pattern, and color with the drab brickwork of the exterior.
The pilasters, architraves, and arches of Renaissance walls, such as Bramante's facade in the Belvedere Court in the Vatican, can imply
layers while the colonnade of the loggia of the south facade of the Louvre makes spatial layers.
The colonnettes in the interior of the cathedral at Rouen or the disengaged pilasters in the anteroom of Syon House represent more detached kinds of layers also, but their subtle contrast to the outside depends more on scale than on form and texture.
