Scope and Content

This series documents Pierre du Prey's research and writing on the Ockham Park album held in the collection of the Canadian Centre for Architecture. The album consists of nineteen folios of drawings and manuscripts devoted to proposed alterations to the Jacobean house, Ockham Park, in Surrey, England. The house, built circa 1638, was altered by architect Nicholas Hawksmoor between 1729 and 1730. Du Prey originally began this research in 1979-early 1980s for a publication project. He returned to this research in 2016 on the occasion of Phyllis Lambert's 90th birthday. Pierre du Prey produced a book from this research which he gave to Lambert for her birthday.

The series contains materials from Pierre du Prey's early research on the album from 1979 to 1985, as well as the additional research and writing he produced in 2016. Also included are photographic reproductions of drawings and manuscripts in the Ockham Park album, correspondence, notes and manuscript for du Prey's catalogue.
