Georgian Architecture Goes Online

The Georgian Group Announcements & general news, News

The Georgian Group has made available via its website more than 350 articles on eighteenth-century architecture and design. 

The Georgian Group Journal, edited by Dr. Geoffrey Tyack, is the authoritative journal of record for early modern architecture in Britain between 1660 to 1840 and was first published in 1986.   

It is cited more often than any other title in Sir Howard Colvins classic work of reference: A Biographical Dictionary of British Architects 1600-1840, and is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of architecture during this fascinating, vibrant period.   

The journal also includes articles on architecture in Ireland and the British diaspora, and on urban development, sculpture, painting, interior decoration and garden design. 

David Adshead, the Groups Secretary, said:

We felt that this important resource, the product of more than 30 yearsscholarship by some of the best architectural historians of their day, should be made available online to everyone and in a fully searchable form. 

Paul Zisman, the Groups Chairman, said: 

Eighteenth century buildings make up the warp and weft of many of our villages, towns and cities and the better we understand them the more likely we are to cherish and protect them for our successors. This new online resource helps us understand how and why they were designed and built.
