Inigo Jones (1573-1652) was the first to introduce classical Italian Renaissance architecture to Gothic Britain. His designs were elegant simplicity in comparison with the previous heavy Tudor architectural design. Jones believed strict mathematical proportion should control plan, elevation and all structure.
