Chapels had multiple uses for the families who were wealthy enough to construct them. They could serve as a place of worship, meeting place, burial location, and most notably a way to leave a permanent mark of a family’s wealth and status. The Pazzi family’s wealth was similar to that of the Medici family and they certainly would have wanted to impress their status on the city of Florence. The chapel’s plan,by Brunelleschi who died before its completion, was based on basic geometric forms and is considered a masterpiece in Renaissance architecture.
