Compass & Rule

A new exhibit at the Yale Center for British Art explores the relationship of mathematics and architecture and features drawings by Inigo Jones, Sir Christopher Wren and King George III.

An online version of the exhibition can be seen here.

In the spirit of the exhibit, here are a few of my favorite drawings from the practice of Quinlan & Francis Terry Architects that were exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition showing their expertise with the compass and rule.
