Palladian classical. What makes us trust architecture? What are the tools that architects apply to make us understand, recognise and ‘like’ a building? The classical tools are : solid ‘rusticated’ base, middle ‘body’ section with grouped elements and a top ‘crown’, all in proportion. #queen’shouse#inigojones#palladio #classicalarchitecture#proportion#diagram
"#lindseyhouse was originally built by #inigojones for the #earloflindsey, who was General of the King's forces for #charlesi, and fell at the #battleofedgehill. A fine masterpiece of the period is still to be seen in part of the chambers."-- #bradshaws #illustratedhandbook #londonanditsenvirons  The original Inigo Jones' staircase is still here. See photos. There is also a hidden wall safe as well. This building is now a law office and a secretary showed me these things very nicely as she had 5 minutes and was happy I came by to see them.
"#lincolninnfields form a fine open square, said to be the dimensions of the base of one of the pyramids of Egypt. The western side was built by #inigojones. Here, on the 21st of July, #1683, was beheaded #lordwilliamrussell; he had been tried and condemned to death in #hickshall." #bradshaws #illustratedhandbook #londonanditsenvirons

"#FourSeasons: A Reimagining" by @gyrandgmbl at @the_globe's #samwanamakerplayhouse is an absolute delight. A wonderful marriage of puppetry, music, staging and venue. (Thanks again for the introduction to the @maxrichtermusic reimagining, @scandinavialist, and thanks to @suransuran for taking a chance on the recommendation.) #vivaldi #maxrichter #shakespearesglobe #theglobetheatre #puppetry #gyreandgimble #londontheatre #jacobeanplayhouse  #elizabethantheatre #elizabethanplayhouse #blackfriarstheatre(ish) #inigojones(ish)
Surrounded by objects of significant size and colour at the @royalacademyarts Charles I exhibition, I'm sure many people missed this small black chalk and pen and brown ink portrait of Inigo Jones by Anthony Van Dyck. • • • It holds a special place in my heart, though, reminding me of my grandfather in whose house a copy of this sketch hung, and because it represents one of the architectural greats. • • • Originally made for a series of portraits of famous men called the Iconographie - a real treat to see it. • • • Inigo Jones 1573 - 1652 was the first significant British architect in the early modern period. He was the first person to introduce the classical architecture of Rome and the Italian Renaissance to Britain and the first to employ Vitruvian rules of proportion and symmetry in his buildings. • • • His remarkable buildings include the #queenshouse the first building in England designed in a pure classical style), the #queenschapel (see previous post) the #banquetinghouse and the #coventgarden piazza. • • • #inigojones #vandyck #anthonyvandyck #sketch #portrait #architect #iconographie #grandshommes #classicalarchitect #classicalarchitecture #seventeenthcentury #17thcentury #history #historyofart #heritage #patrimoine #patrimonio #london #england #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #charlesiexhibition #royalacademyofarts #designer #beautycomesinarchitecturalform #designtheworldbeautiful
Completed in 1625, the Queens Chapel is England's first classical church; built by one of the UK's finest architects, Inigo Jones. • • • Ecclesiastical architecture until then had been dominated by the spiked forms of gothic spires, arches and pinnacles. • • • Indeed the only other classical building in London at the time was Jones's Banqueting House of three years earlier. • • • The chapel was built in an Italianate style for the young Catholic Queen Hentrietta Maria, daughter of Henry IV of France and Marie de Medici, and wife of the future Charles I of England. • • • Their wedding was the first time a Protestant prince had married a Catholic princess, and special papal dispensation was needed. • • • Under the staunchly Protestant William III (William of Orange), the chapel became a place of worship for Dutch Protestant courtiers, only becoming a Royal chapel again in 1938. • • • #inigojones #queenschapel #pallmall #themall #marboroughroad #classicalarchitecture #neoclassicalarchitecture #architecture #beautycomesinarchitecturalform #design #designtheworldbeautiful #designdesigndesign #bydesign #pediment #chapel #englisharchitecture #britisharchitecture #london #england #britain #greatbritain #uk #history #heritage #patrimoine #patrimonio #charlesi #charles1 #banquetinghouse
