Baroque architects understood buildings as a single mass to be shaped according to a number of requirements. For them a building was to some extent a kind of large sculpture. That is why the stone carving is an integral part of the Brukenthal Palace and, if removed from it, the setting loses nearly all its effect.
Besides the two portals, the passageways in Brukenthal Palace are vaulted and supported by columns, at the entrance as well as between the inner courtyards. As in the ancient Greek temples, the columns give the optical illusion of a large building to tower even larger.
