Back in North Kingstown to work with the developer and architect on reuse plans for the Wickford Free Library. PRI looks forward to holding a permanent preservation easement on this historic building in the heart of the village's main street. With @ncarchitects_usa
A look at The British Museum as featured in The Traveller's Album and Hotel Guide. The external architecture of the Museum was designed to reflect the purpose of the building. Its beautiful South entrance with stairs, colonnade and pediment was designed to reflect the amazing exhibitions inside. The columns were modeled after those of ancient Greek temples and the pediment at the top of the building is also a common feature of classical Greek architecture. #inspiringarchitecture#greekrevival#contemporaryclassical
Shuttered doors. 🧡 There are two of them on the front of the house and I’ve spotted more in the shed. This set has a spring mounted on the inside to prevent them from blowing open. * The house had two wings added onto it around 1867 and I’m guessing the shutters were added then. Also, missing from this photo, one transom window.
