Mark Girouard’s new book, Elizabethan Architecture, highlights the unique and fascinating composition of Elizabethan buildings. Beyond, Girouard delves into the social structure of the period illuminating the evolution of the house plan and the influence of Europe on craftsmen and patrons in England. His principal argument stems from cross-cultural pollination, but ultimately points to Elizabethan Architecture as a particularly English achievement.
