Talk and document display
As a leading architect of the Victorian era, Pennethorne designed some of the most photographed and iconic parts of London’s landscape. Rising from pupil to chief assistant to architect John Nash (designer of Regent’s Park, Regent Street, Buckingham Palace), James Pennethorne (1801-1871) would go on to work extensively on Government-sponsored improvement schemes in London, from Victoria Park and the first Public Record Office in Chancery Lane, to the Ballroom at Buckingham Palace and the first headquarters of the University of London in Piccadilly.
In this talk, Geoffrey Tyack will showcase a selection of our extensive collection of Pennethorne’s designs to illustrate architecture in the Victorian era.
Geoffrey Tyack has taught architectural history and the history of urban planning for many years. He has recently completed a book on the history of the British urban landscape, due to be published by Oxford University Press in 2021.
Timings are indicative. Talk expected to last one hour, including 15 mins for audience Q&A.
