Name of creator
Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860) was one of the preeminent British architects of the nineteenth century. His work can be considered as the epitome of historicism, as he designed buildings in the Gothic, Greek, and Renaissance revival styles. He is best known for his competition-winning designs for the Houses of Parliament in London (1836) and for the designs of private clubs such as the Manchester Atheneum (1836-1839) and the Reform Club in London (1837-1841).
Scope and content
The fonds contains drawings for six projects (18 originals and 1 copy) dating from 1835-1850, including the Manchester Atheneum (1836-1839), the Italianate Trentham Hall in Staffordshire (1934-1949), the Houses of Parliament (1836) in London at Westminster (elevations, perspective and details) and the Reform Club in London (1837-1841).
