Geometrical Design at Triangular Lodge

Square 210 x 210mm / 22 pages / full colour

A geometrical analysis and design reconstruction of Triangular Lodge, designed geometrically by Sir Thomas Tresham and built on his estate at Rushton in Northamptonshire between 1593 and 1597 as a lodge for his Warrener. The text explores Tresham’s geometrical thought process to give a full evolution of the building’s design including, for the first time, the recording of a geometrically inscribed stone beneath an aumbrey in one of the main floor’s triangular anterooms and an explanation of its role in the design of the building’s unusual entrance canopy.
