His Architecture...

One of the many structures he designed is the Queen's House in Greenwich. He started


it in 1615 and finished it in1635.Sadly, the Queen died before it was finished. Another


structure he contributed to was Kirby Hall. It's located in Corby, Northamptonshire, UK.

It's "ISM"

My Opinion and Skepticism

details

I like this building because it's so big and beautiful. This looks very renaissance like. The


way the stairways are designed and the shape of it. Especially the balcony. This house


looked a little bit ahead for its time during the renaissance. It's ism is skepticism


because he tried evolving the idea of a prism like house and made it into a more


detailed White House like structure. Kirby Hall's gateway was attributed to Inigo Jones


for building them. He made it pleasing for the eye to look at, and elegant.
