Abstract

This article discusses the notion of architectural space in two novels by Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy. Hardy was for a time an architectural draughtsman and a member of the AA (his name was removed from the membership list in 1872 after he defaulted in his subscription!) Austen's primary interest was in people. As Pevsner says in his pioneering essay, 'The architectural setting of Jane Austen's novels' (Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes volume 31, 1968, pp. 404-422) 'she is without exception vague, when it comes to buildings.'Julienne Hanson's essay is based on a study carried out at University College London, under the direction of Bill Hillier and Adrian Leaman.
