George Basevi

Categories: Architecture

Architect. Born London. Cousin to Benjamin Disraeli. Designed some lovely squares in London: Belgrave Square, Alexander Square, Thurloe Square, Pelham Crescent and Place, Walton Place, and a number of churches in the Gothic style. The Conservative Club was designed jointly with Smirke. Died after falling from the floor in a tower at Ely Cathedral, where he is buried. We don't think they just buried him where he lay.
