They were modelled on the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, built by Constantine over Jesus s tomb in the fourth century.

Architectural Studio

The Columbus Architectural Studio will be led by Dan Hanes, a designer of projects in the Arena District, and other former employees of the 360 Architecture firm that was acquired by HOK. Hanes likened the evolution to going from a little bluegrass band (360 Architecture) to a world class symphony (HOK) and then back to a bluegrass band (Columbus Architectural Studio). “They (HOK) go after a lot of large-scale projects, in town and nationally, ” he told me. “But we wanted to kind of focus in on a different kind of client, focus a little bit closer…

A general view of Burghley House on the first day of the Burghley Horse Trials at Burghley Park, Stamford. Photograph: Ben Stansall/Getty Images The elderly Inigo Jones, the first architect to bring Italianate Renaissance architecture to Britain, is reckoned to have had a hand in this country house, particularly the dignified south facade, with its central Venetian window and pedimented corner towers (a trick Jones had borrowed from the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio, and others borrowed from Jones).

No reliable statistics exist — it’s not the sort of thing you can audit — but England is surely the most haunted country on earth. And haunted not just by white ladies, ghosts, headless highwaymen, spooks and phantoms, but by a recurrent dream of Eden and other more recently lost pre-industrial worlds. Thus follies and summer houses, Eden’s buildings, are among the nation’s most distinctive contributions to world architecture.

Architect Company

This may be a dangerous question to ask for someone whose role is that of an Architect, but I think it is a valid question for an Architect to ask. This is particularly true in the software industry where the role is interpreted in many different ways.
