It’s A No Brainer Really

All praise to the Victorians for their whimsy, and to Waterstone’s for their conveniently sited staircase that gives us this close-up view. This gives more function and control. My recent visit to Banbury threw up one further highlight in the brief interval between rain and more rain. One of the joys of visiting the great cities of the ancient world – Istanbul is supreme in this respect – is the amount of Classical rubble lying around on the ground. In spite of blitzkrieg, modernism, decay, and demolition, there are still plenty of Classical buildings in England. In the intervening 360-plus years it has been through quite a bit, and the recent shop fronts, successors to earlier but still intrusive ones no doubt, are not the least of the changes. How satisfying that some shop designer should have thought to set off his glass window – itself a great curving swathe of transparency – with this small detail. Dorset, then, does well by this small but enchanting county and confirms that the old series in its new guise it still very much alive and kicking.

All this is very much of its time, when what has been described as a sort of baroque began to spread across English vernacular architecture. The new Dorset is illuminating, then, and manages to incorporate the essence, and much of the text, of the old volume while adding much to it. The photographs are good as usual and there are several of the maps and plans that make the revised volumes still more useful than the old ones. This blog is now three years old this month, so bear with me while I reflect about how I blog, and why. It’s a shame that the ground floor is now singing to a different tune. But now and then you spot these forms, especially at the point where architecture and decoration intersect, and one of these points is the shop front. The picture shows part of a shop front in Leamington. The front of the building, to the east, is supported by Tuscan columns.

In its heyday this must have been a grand building, home and place of work to a successful town trader. This is true, but not the whole truth – there are pargetted fronts dotted around all over the place. Of course, capitals are usually high up on a building. Around the world, there are thousands of people who share a passion for building model houses that are basically some miniature houses very similar to the real ones. It was built in 1626 as the water gate to York House, home of George Villiers 1st Duke of Buckingham (whose name and title are commemorated in the street names hereabouts). I used to work in Covent Garden and sometimes, especially in summer, there was a strong temptation to cross the Strand and make for the refreshment provided by Gordon’s Wine Bar in Villiers Street. As stated above, there are several different architecture degrees, and your first step when researching a school should be to make sure they have the one you’re interested in.

There are spa towns all over England, from Harrogate to Tunbridge Wells, Malvern to Woodhall Spa. But one can still take in the original form: three bow windows jettied out over the street, and, above them, three gables likewise protruding. The picture shows the capital atop one of the giant Corinthian pilasters inside the shop. Why look at the window frame when you’re interested in the goods inside? A regular reader, noticing that most of my photographs are of exteriors, recently asked me how often I manage to look inside the buildings I post about. There are many online courses available offering two-year, four-year as well as five-year programs. Architects today rely on numerous CAD software programs to construct blob architecture. Drawing and sketching is another form of art that has been embraced by Architects. The research paper could focus on a specific art form or artists. Edwardian architecture was a riot of styles, from Arts and Crafts to Bankers’ Baroque, and the delicate wave patterns of Art Nouveau got squeezed out rather.

Adorning the white infill sections is pargetted plasterwork in bold geometrical patterns. What has the author Neil Childs written? What has the author Stewart Fyfe written? What a shame that so many historical monuments and sites have been lost forever. And does this have anything to do with the recent influx of beautiful dolls in the town? Above the windows offering coffee and the conveniences of 21st-century life, the frontage is more original, but still has the air of trying to escape through the accretions of the more recent past. Hill also updates the coverage of Eleanor Coade’s wonderful house Belmont, with its ‘frenzy of decoration’, covering its recent restoration and the alterations to it which are controversial, but through which Hill tiptoes with tact. At present, confuses are being founded that will reduce this specific worry, nevertheless because of this, the expense of with all the cloud seller improves. You will need to understand software delivery process, be highly analytical and detail orientated. It does not behave well when applications need to exceed the data outside the application. The class library is used by programmers, who combine it with their own code to produce applications. In this regard, Perry is similar to many artists who draw inspiration from the built environment.
