Georgian and Regency Architecture

Derek Avery
Chaucer, 2003 - Architecture - 144 pages
Georgian and Regency architecture spans the years from 1714 until 1830, a period that bequeathed a rich heritage of buildings to the British landscape. From great country houses and churches to the formal city squares of Edinburgh and the graceful crescents of Bath, Georgian structures are distinguished by the elegance and harmony of their design. Georgian and Regency Architecture contains over two hundred illustrations, a chapter on the development of the concept of town planning, and biographical details of the outstanding architects of the time - from Adam and Hawkesmoor to Palladio and Wyatville. This title is part of a trilogy of books published by Chaucer press, lavishly portraying three hundred years of architecture, from the Georgian and Regency period through the Victorian and Edwardian era to the modern day.
