Odo of metz



As the architect for the Palatine Chapel at Aachen, Odo of Metz was responsibl­e for the most iconic building of the Carolingia­n Renaissanc­e. Influenced by the style of the Byzantines, Odo’s design ushered in the Romanesque school of architectu­re. We know little about Odo’s life — in fact, he is only known as the chapel’s architect thanks to a reference in Einhard’s Vita Karoli

Magni and a lost inscriptio­n inside the building itself.
