Inigo Jones's Covent Garden Piazza, London, UK
One of a number of similar projects carried out by the Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA) at Bath, this computer reconstruction was concerned with
the original design by Inigo Jones for the Covent Garden Piazza. Following later modernisation and addition of new buidlings in the 19th century, Jones's grand scheme has not survived.
