David Robson, Professor of Architecture and author of a number of books on architectural themes, will continue the story.
The Palladian aesthetic, so championed by Lord Burlington, was the key to success in the Whig-dominated politics of Hanoverian London and the new land-owning classes chose the style of Andrea Palladio in the design of their great houses.
The reigns of the four Georges marked a period of remarkable architectural consensus that we now call Georgian. Although this ranged from the measured correctness of Colen Campbell and the creative imagination of William Kent to the inventive exuberance of John Nash (the architect of Brighton Pavilion), it remained Palladian at heart.
David Robson will explore the roots of Georgian architecture.
