Structured Spaces

The National Gallery's "Structured Spaces" webpage brings together paintings within the gallery's collections that have particular architectural relevance. The site is an extension of the "Structured Spaces Audio Tour" - an audio trail through the gallery created in 2005 to celebrate architecture week.
The site is divided into sections: World of Interiors; Building in Symbolism; Ruins and Regeneration; The Idealised City; A Brave New World and London Landmarks. Each section has thorough descriptions of the paintings, explaining how architecture plays an important part in them.
