What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
You will need to bring nothing other than an interest in the history of London, Londoners and the city's architecture.
Course aim:
We shall look at the history of London and its architecture through ten urban houses and their occupants ranging from the suburban Linley Sambourne House to aristocratic Spencer House.
Course description:
The course will look at ten houses built in London and some of the people who lived in them to illustrate aspects of the city’s architecture and history. Most of these houses were built after the Great Fire of London in 1666. 1. Introduction, 2 Temple Place; Astor the Merchant Prince. 2. Lambeth Palace; Continuing Tradition in the Church of England. 3. Spencer House; Creating an Aristocratic Town House. 4. Apsley House; Home for a Hero and Politician. 5. Dr. Johnson’s House, Gough Square; Georgian Literary Society. 6. Linley Sambourne House; Stafford Terrace, a Victorian Family Home. 7. Leighton House, Holland Park Road; an Artist’s Moorish Fantasy. 8. The Foundling Hospital; Caring for Georgian Orphans. 9. Sir John Soane’s Museum, Lincoln’s Inn Fields; Regency Architect’s Home and Collection. 10. 2 Willow Road; Erno Goldfinger’s Modern Home.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Recognise the main features of an Aristocratic Town House.
2. Understand how a house could be a home and place of work.
3. Appreciate how leasehold houses frequently changed occupants.
4. Recognise how fashion influenced the architectural styles chosen for these houses.
5. Understand how collections in a house can change how we relate to it.
