Famous landmarks of London

Westminster Abbey is a large, mainly Gothic, church located just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is one of the most notable religious buildings in the United Kingdom and is the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English and, later, British monarchs. Most of the present building dates from 1245 to 1272 when Henry decided to rebuild an old abbey in the Gothic style. The building was later significantly expanded: the Chapel of Henry VII was added between 1503 and 1512, while the two West Front Towers date from 1745. 9Palace…

The Pain brothers, James and George R., designed a number of public buildings in the first half of the century, as did the Deane brothers, Kearns and Sir Thomas. In the second half of the century Sir John Benson was very influential and notable contributions were…

Home Architecture

By Melissa Allison Picture a long, low-slung home with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed beams and an open floor plan. Don Draper is there, right? Or at least it’s a mid-century modern? Well, probably. That description also fits a fair number of prairie-style homes — which came earlier — and ranch homes, which have some overlap with mid-century modern. The confusion comes because mid-century modern is not actually a style: It’s a collection of designs built from roughly 1940 to 1975. What they share is “an emphasis on lifestyle, a new way of modern…
