"In this book leading architectural and garden historians trace villa life in Britain for the first time. Through a series of thematic chapters and individual case studies they explain its social background and achievements. Famous buildings such as Inigo Jones's Queen's House at Greenwich are analysed and reinterpreted, along with lesser-known houses and gardens in the London area, the English provinces, and Scotland. Copiously illustrated, with plentiful plans, this book is a major contribution to the history of domestic architecture and garden design in Britain, and is essential reading for anyone interested in early modern society and the history of the built environment."--Jacket

Architect, patron and craftsman in Tudor and early Stuart England : essays for Malcolm Airs by P. S Barnwell( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the papers from a weekend conference held at Rewley House in Oxford in 2016 in honour of Professor Malcolm Airs who taught there from 1975 to 2006, and whose scholarship has centred on the domestic architecture of the Tudor and Stuart period, particularly on building processes and craftsmen. It was a period in which Gothic elements continued to be used, but mixed with details inspired by a Classical antiquity. This was the English Renaissance, but the systematic study of Classical models and the publication of handbooks of Classical architecture, and the profession of architecture, were all in their infancy. The blend of styles is unique to England; while it used to be dismissed as backward it is today celebrated for its inventiveness and pioneering achievements. In these papers Professor Airs friends and colleagues pay tribute to his scholarship in a series of essays on topics which have interested him. They include the reception and appreciation of the architecture of the Tudor and Early Stuart period, studies of the sources of inspiration for individual house designs, using both written and architectural evidence, the setting of houses, planning, fixtures and decoration
