St. Paul’s Cathedral

For my Architecture class, every week, two students are assigned to visit a specific building and draw it. Of course, I had to go the first week. And of course, I got St. Paul’s Cathedral, specifically the West Front. If you haven’t been to London, let’s just say there are many less complicated buildings to draw than St. Paul’s Cathedral.

It has an interesting history though. It was built after the 1666 Great Fire, which pretty much destroyed all of London, by Sir Christopher Wren. He built a bunch of other buildings throughout London, mainly churches, but St. Paul’s has to be the most grand, most expensive of them all. The greatest thing about London, for me, really is its incredible history. Every building here has more history than the whole of America, which is just so cool.
