Lost London

From Wikipedia:
Inigo Jones, born in London of Welsh parents, was a famous architect who brought Italianate Renaissance design to England.
From Wiki:
Jones' best known buildings are the Queen's House at Greenwich, London (started in 1616, his earliest surviving work) and the Banqueting House at Whitehall (1619) – part of a major modernisation by him of the Palace of Whitehall – which also has a ceiling painted by Peter Paul Rubens.

Christ Church at Greyfriars was destroyed in the Second World War; the ruins are now a public garden
. However, in an ingenious use of space and to maintain architectural relevance, the main bell tower has been converted into a remarkable residence by BoyarskyMurphy.
