For the British set, we chose England’s Big Ben for the landmark. We looked for a style of architecture that was uniquely British and popular during the time Big Ben was built (so the RCI surrounding it would provide context). We settled on the Georgian-style of architecture popular throughout England and its colonies (including America) during the 18th and early 19th centuries. This is a style that’s functional, no-nonsense, and employs simple materials such as brick and stone. These are boxy, multi-floor buildings with classic proportions based on mathematical ratios, multi-paned windows, gabled and gambreled (think barn) roofs, and multiple chimneys. You’ll quickly identify these buildings with their red and brown brick facades, clean white trim, and cool grey roof color schemes with Big Ben.
