THE HIGH ROMAN STYLE by STUART HOOD
The Buildings of the Ancients ... serve as models which we should imitate and as standards which we should judge ROBERT ADAM
The finest period of British architecture was deeply influenced by the great palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian in modern Yugoslavia. It stands to this day as the nucleus of the city of Split, and it was this building which inspired the young Scots architect in much of his best work.
In 1757 Adam wrote back to friends in England: If fortune should favour me highly, I may have the opportunity of reviving something of the old style in England.' His enthusiasm for the place was boundless: he drew it and measured its every detail. His book on The Palace was dedicated to George III, and through him the style of the late Roman Empire produced perhaps the greatest period of British architecture.
