Architecture

In July we will be looking at the end of Baroque, with fine houses such as Chatsworth House and the magnificent Blenheim Palace where the Duchess sacks the architect because it was not a cosy enough house to be lived in. We move on to Early Georgian, the simplification of Classical and Renaissance design with some delightful buildings including a boom in church buildings. Robert Adams appears with Keddleston Hall and others, introducing a Classical Antiquity rejecting Palladio. Town terraces begin to appear, rows of similar dwellings some fine such as Bath and London, others not so good as developers begin to appear. Georgian is perhaps the most common architecture to be seen, so lets understand its mathematical symmetry.

This is the last of the ten I promised you so we will break for summer and I haven't decided whether to continue or not yet.
