A geometrical analysis and design reconstruction of Triangular Lodge, designed geometrically by Sir Thomas Tresham and built on his estate at Rushton in Northamptonshire between 1593 and 1597 as a lodge for his Warrener. The text explores Tresham’s geometrical thought process to give a full evolution of the building’s design including, for the first time, the recording of a geometrically inscribed stone beneath an aumbrey in one of the main floor’s triangular anterooms and an explanation of its role in the design of the building’s entrance canopy.

The book explores the underlying use of compass drawn daisy wheel and whirling square geometries, the classic fusion of circularity and angularity found in the earlier designs of Romanesque cathedrals, through text and accompanying explanatory geometrical drawings.
