Description:
Considered one of the most visionary proposals of its time, this design for an addition to Westminster was the result of an unlikely collaboration. At the time, John Pollard Seddon, an architect of the High Victorian style, was near the end of his career. His most celebrated work (University College of Wales at Aberystwyth) had been completed for 40 years. The much younger Edward Beckitt Lamb was influenced by F.F.A. Voysey and the Arts & Crafts movement. Together the two dreamed up a majestic monument to the British Empire. Though not executed, their design called for grand-scale halls and a massive tower on the crossing of Westminster Abbey.

Over centuries the unfinished Westminster has elicited several proposals; the design by Seddon and Lamb remains one of the most ambitious London has ever seen. Renovations to Westminster Abbey are scheduled to be completed for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. The pyramidal roof, constructed following damage during World War II, will be replaced by a corona.

Unexecuted Design for the Imperial Monumental Halls and Tower, Westminster, London, Viewed Looking North-east, 1904, by John Pollard Seddon (English, 1827-1906) and Edward Beckitt Lamb (English, 1857-1932). Puzzle size 27 x 20 in. (68.6 x 50.8 cm)

Warning: Choking Hazard - Contains small parts not suitable for children under 3 years.
