Work

Famous peice of work is Banqueting House at White Hall

Created in 1672

Still standing in London

Columns stacked high, Only one building and it's one giant room. Extremey decorated and is very fancy

I find this peice very interesting becaause it was Inigo Jones' greatest inventions of all time and is still standing today

inigo Jones built it as if it were the Renaissance design, cut stone masonry, Urban

Individualism- It shows the moral worth of Jones
