John Nash, the Architect Who Transformed London



John Nash's buildings exemplified the neoclassical style of early 19th Century Architecture. His sweeping changes transformed London, from the graceful curve of Regent Street to the majestic terraces and vistas in Regent's Park.

View some of his edifices below:

1. Regent's Park
2. Regent Street
3. Buckingham Palace


We will devote an entire section to Brighton Palace later.

Whyme,

It isn't the same person, as he lived in a different century. He was as much of a genius as the mathematical John Nash, though.
