The Tulip Staircase by Inigo Jones at Greenwich
Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Richard Woodward described the Palladian Feast of Inigo Jones and how it almost went up in flames. On the same day, we wrote about AWN Pugin and the transformation created by Neo-Gothic architecture.
Inigo Jones was the scene setter for Georgian architecture. The Georgian style was very different from Pugin's. It, too, changed Britain and the world. Seeing Music explains.
