An exhibition exploring how the striking buildings of the great English Baroque architect Nicholas Hawksmoor, such as Christ Church, Spitalfields and St George, Bloomsbury, have sparked the imaginations of generations of architects, artists and writers. A range of fascinating images and quotations are juxtaposed alongside film interviews with architect Ptolemy Dean, novelist Philip Pullman and poet Iain Sinclair, to dramatically bring to light the imaginative legacy of this most original architect.
