    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #54

    Question

    Which architect, famous for churches, wrote some 300 years ago: "The peoples of London may despise some eyesore until it is demolished, whereupon by magick the replacement is deemed inferior to the former edifice, now eulogized in high and glowing reference"? Was it Lord Burlington, Sir Christopher Wren, Inigo Jones, or Charles Bulfinch? Which was his most famous church?

    Answer

    He was already a professor of astronomy at Oxford before his interest in city planning and architecture led him to designs for a new layout of the city of London (after the great fire of 1666) and the design for Saint Paul's Cathedral (1675-1710). This was, of course, Sir Christopher Wren (1631-1723).
