biography | the architect at a glance

Trained as a scientist, Sir Christopher Wren is perhaps England's greatest architect. Among his works constructed in London after the Great Fire of 1666, was the magnificent rebuilding of St. Paul's Cathedral. The church included an innovative dome with acoustics so refined, that words whispered against the wall could be heard clearly on the opposite side of the dome.
