I will be focusing on how older architecture impacts the overall look and identity of London. The primary architect I will be focusing on is Christopher Wren, the architect who designed iconic places such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Temple Bar, and Hampton Court Palace. While in London and visiting these places, I will focus on the specific details of Wren’s design and how it impacts the architecture of the rest of the city—how these buildings stand out and how they have survived the plague, the Great Fire, and two World Wars. I love cathedrals and I want to show how English architecture differs from that of other countries as well as how St. Paul’s is depicted in English literature.
