Aimed at those new to the work of Wren, in this introductory five week course Dr Michael Paraskos, of Imperial College London, will present a series of lively talks looking at some of the key buildings Wren created and the contexts in which they were formed. We will learn about where Wren’s architectural ideas came from, how he applied those ideas with a scientific spirit of calculation and experimentation, and we shall explore his legacy in the work of later architects.
The course will be taught in person in the classrooms at Imperial College London and also simultaneously live via the internet (hybrid). Recordings of the lectures will also be available to those signed up to the course. The course is held weekly, 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
