Comments: Considered by many to be the most important British architect of the era encompassing the later half of the 18th century until his death in 1835. He is responsible for much of the layout of Regency London. Nash designed and laid out Regents Park and its Terraces (1813 - 1820), using radical designs that would heavily influence Olmstead in his creation of Central Park, New York City, 50 years later. In 1825 he redesigned Buckingham House and, with its new splendor, became known as Buckingham Palace.Signed: Y
