Banqueting House at Whitehall
Inigo Jones, architect
It is Inigo Jones who introduced Palladianism to King James I (r. 1603-1625) and all of England with his design for Banqueting House at Whitehall built in 1619. Palladian influences abound as its façade reiterates the unified proportions of Italian Renaissance architecture through the rhythmic placement of windows, engaged columns, and pilasters.
