Nicholas Hawksmoor

Nicholas Hawkmoor was a Nottinghamshire-born architect, active in England in the late-17th and early-18th centuries. He was associated as draughtsman, measurer or clerk of works with nearly all of Sir Christopher Wren's works around 1684. He served twice as Secretary to the Board of Works, once from 1715-8 and again from 1726-36. A more-than-able assistant to architect, Sir John Vanbrugh, Hawksmoor was a master of the baroque.
