The world’s great palaces and cathedrals, so etched in the collective landscape as monumental feats of art and engineering were built to survive and long outlast their owners’ bloodlines. With rising sea levels many will be condemned to face a watery grave and become a rarity.
Deeply inspired by architecture of eras past, William Llewellyn Griffith’s work revives the grandeur of gothic, the unapologetic opulence of baroque and rococo, and is masterfully made with purpose, to fascinate and endure.
