Hawksmoor's London churches : architecture and theology by Pierre de la Ruffinière Du Prey( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Six remarkable churches built by Nicholas Hawksmoor from 1712 to 1731 still tower over London. Their striking limestone steeples and luminous interiors were designed by him for a parliamentary commission intent on affirming the majesty of the Anglican Church. In Hawksmoor's London Churches, architectural historian Pierre de la Ruffiniere du Prey argues that though each church is unique, they can be viewed as an integrated whole - a single masterpiece that reflects the architect's design principles and his client's wish to return to the purity of early Christian times."--Jacket

Nicholas Hawksmoor : rebuilding ancient wonders by Vaughan Hart( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The diverse works of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (?1661-1736) ranged from small architectural details to ambitious urban plans, from new parish churches to work on the monument of his age, St. Paul's cathedral. As a young man Hawksmoor assisted Christopher Wren and John Vanbrugh, emerging from these formidable apprenticeships to design some of the most vigorous and dramatic buildings in England. In this engaging book, architectural historian Vaughan Hart presents a fresh view of Hawksmoor's built and planned work. In addition, Hart offers the first coherent explanation of Hawksmoor's theory of architecture." "Most famous for his brooding London churches and the mausoleum at Castle Howard, Hawksmoor also designed the twin towers of Westminster Abbey and, in Oxford, the Clarendon Building and college of All Souls. He dreamed of transforming the historic centres of Oxford and Cambridge into ideal cities, and at Westminster he planned a new bridge and triumphal route to celebrate London's growing status as a world capital. Hart explains why Hawksmoor's buildings look the way they do, what contemporary events influenced his work, and how such ancient buildings as Solomon's temple and Mausolus's tomb inspired him. Underscoring the unique qualities of the architect's accomplishments and aspirations, Hart establishes with new clarity Hawksmoor's role in the development of English architecture."--Jacket
