In its finely-scaled surroundings, where all must tread lightly, Quinlan Terry's building suffers from too large a footprint. He bravely makes the best of it by putting storefronts on both streets that form his corner, but ultimately there's not much else he could do about it; the client determined the footprint.

Yet another illustration that you can't blame all design shortcomings on the architect.

Well, I think on a scale of 1-10 (where 10 is terrible)a s a peccadillo the footprint issue is a 1 in this specific case. Some classical architect (can't remember if it's QT or not) ’solved’ the issue of a large programmatic footprint and relation to existing scale in Baker St. (London) by building something that looks like several townhouses but is in fact a continuous façade. Works qite well, I think.

BTW, Christ Church Spitalfields, by Hawksmoor (I can see it as I type…). I think those are Tuscan columns?? Certainly no triglyphs or guttae.

Ablarc, you should start your own Classical thread. This a narrowly focused examination of the Doric vocabulary and usage. Your post isn't a waste, you've provided some relevant images, and shown that, if Canaletto is to be believed (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2e/View_of_the_entrance_to_the_Arsenal_by_Canaletto%2 C_1732.jpg), Venice lost a tiny Doric temple (http://wedding.spyang.com/honeymoon/images/Venice-Arsenale2.jpg) since 1732.

If there can be such a thing as perfection in human endeavor, this could be it.

The restraint and intimacy ADD to the grandeur in a way that sheer size or monumentlaity could not.

It almost makes you (well, me) want to cry, when you think some people think of this merely as "of its time".

Dovetail shaped guttae-like dentil and "quadglyphs" among other things (like dropped puns) set this doric inspired/informed school apart.

The First Unitarian Church of Providence completed in 1816 by architect John Holden Greene (http://proteus.brown.edu/greekpast/4524) displays a unique Federal style use of the order employing "bundled reed" beaded columns and wild guttae-like dentil.

This Doric room takes its cues from the Parthenon (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DoricParthenon.jpg), complete with lion heads, centaurs, and in the Greek manner features mutules above both the triglyphs and metopes.

The polychrome interpretation (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c3/Antike_Polychromie_1.jpg) can be credited to classical architecture scholar Jacques Ignace Hittorff (http://www.musee-orsay.fr/en/info/gdzoom.html?tx_damzoom_pi1%5Bzoom%5D=1&tx_damzoom_pi1%5BxmlId%5D=056024&tx_damzoom_pi1%5Bback%5D=en%2Fcollections%2Findex-of-works%2Fresultat-collection.html%3Fno_cache%3D1%26zsz%3D9&cHash=669c65b904).

The precise geometric meanders show adherence to a tightly regulated proportioning system.
