DRobert Hooke

Correct Option: 2  

Inigo Jones
Jones (1573-1652) is described as the first of the British architects to be celebrated, and remembered by name. Wikipedia: "Jones was the first person to introduce the classical architecture of Rome and the Italian Renaissance to Britain. He left his mark on London by his design of single buildings, such as the Queen's House which is the first building in England designed in a pure classical style, and the Banqueting House, Whitehall, as well as the layout for Covent Garden square which became a model for future developments in the West End. He made major contributions to stage design by his work as theatrical designer for several dozen masques, most by royal command and many in collaboration with Ben Jonson."
