Worcester College Chapel, Oxford


Photo Information
Detail of the ceiling of Worcester College Chapel, originally designed by James Wyatt in the eighteenth century. According to the college: "Between 1864 and 1866 the chapel was redecorated by William Burges ... 'one of the most potent' (as Nikolaus Pevsner describes him) of High Victorian architects; 'he did not obliterate Wyatt's work entirely but he swamped it' in creating a Victorian vision of an early basilica." Oxford, 17 August 2011.

It's a great college, I studied there several years ago. I was taught a lot, very grateful for it. It was very hard for me to write various course papers, I had to seek help, which I found at The Tampa Bay Times. There are the best educational providers collected here which will help with any kind of college assignment fast and well.

This engineering and details of the ceiling of Worcester College Chapel resembles a lot the interior design of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Of course the latter is much newer compared to this artwork, but for some reason it resonates with it. Still both artists are much talented, I wish engineering assignment helper found at this website were professional enough to reproduce at least some of this unique design that was created long before their birth. Also I wonder what are the feelings of students when they are attending classes in buildings like these!
