Trained as an astronomer, Wren applied seventeenth-century scientific methods to his investigation of ancient, medieval, and Renaissance architecture. From his analysis of ancient buildings, he posited a new version of the origins and development of the Classical style, thereby becoming one of the first to challenge theoretical principles of architecture that had been upheld since the fifteenth century.
