summary In this paper we present the idea of symmetry fields and an analysis of them on Palladian villas. Symmetry fields describe the symmetry related to the localized experiential view of an individual. We propose that the amount of symmetry, whether it be reflective, rotational, or translational, can be computed along with several other measures of visual aesthetic. While many buildings are designed using symmetry about the plan, and are represented using a plan view, it is only accessible to the designer and cannot actually be experienced in the real world. The local symmetries produced are drastically different than those planned.
