Georgian Architecture, Its Origins and Inspiration

  • Workshop

Georgian Architecture, its origins and inspiration: a whirlwind onscreen live lecture.

(Age group 13 plus/Time: 1pm/County Dublin)

What exactly is Georgian architecture?  Where did the inspiration come from?  Why is it so celebrated?  Who were the top architects?  And what are the “rules” they followed?

A 35-minute live on-screen workshop delivered by Arran Henderson of Dublin Decoded tours on behalf of the Irish Georgian Society and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the workshop covers…

  • main features, and main terms: columns and capitals; porticos and pediments, Doric and Ionic… what does it all mean
  • where does the inspiration for Georgian architecture come from, and what are the rules?
  • the classical “orders” and how to recognise them!
  • learn about some celebrated Georgian architects (Gandon, Johnston and others) and about key examples of their work.
