Inigo Jones's Banqueting House, Whitehall, London, UK
Inigo Jones's Banqueting House, Whitehall (1619-22) was one of the earliest Neoclassical buildings completed in England. The well-proportioned design used
the Ionic and Composite orders on the interior and exterior. The seven-bay façade was symmetrical, with a central section - marked by balconies on the first floor - breaking
forward. There was no entrance in the façade. This harmonious design was altered in the 18th century and is seen today. This project, undertaken by Vaughan Hart, Alan Day
and David Cook of the Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA), University of Bath, was concerned with visualisation of
the original design prior to the 18th-century alteration. Computer-aided design software (CAD) was used to render the model based on a photogrammetric survey of the building, both
carried out by CASA, Bath.

Resource status: The model was shown at the 1994 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London.
