  Inigo Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Inigo Jones (July 15, 1573–June 21, 1652) is regarded as the first significant English architect.
Jones' best known buildings are the Queen's House at Greenwich, London (started in 1616, his earliest surviving work) and the Banqueting House at Whitehall (1619) -- part of a major modernisation by him of the Palace of Whitehall -- which also has a ceiling painted by Peter Paul Rubens.
Jones is also credited with introducing movable scenery and the proscenium arch to English theatre.

Certainly, Jones visited the Danish court in 1603 - at least - and was attached to Queen Anne and the English court as state designer and architect since 1604, being responsible for very many so-called masques, or court entertainments, and, for example, the famous Queen's House in Greenwich (1616+).
Inigo Jones being the designer of the Rosenborg Gate Tower would at the same time confirm a core of his rumoured role in Rosenborg Castle.
The Børsen connection is probably fed by Jones' drawing of the New Exchange (1608+) in London, which carries a certain similarity to the Copenhagen one, and the false idea that Jones was the architect of the New Exchange.

Since, for Jones, "imitativeness is a philosophical receptiveness" (27), he is content to commit himself to "a lifetime of imitation" (32): importing his images from their predominantly French and Italian source cultures through what amounted to "a campaign of grand larceny" (13).
Tellingly, for Peacock, the mature Jones was able to enjoy a "personal rule" over the masque productions, figuring implicitly as the King’s "double," identifying his cultural politics "with the principles of Charles’s rule," and fortifying the effect of his designs "without as it were breaking cover and surrendering the role of hidden persuader" (325).
In a diatribe against Jonson, the aged Jones claimed that he himself had been the storehouse of the poet’s "plottes"; and later in the same piece he had quipped that in the latter’s verse the best was translation while the worst was the poet’s own.

 Inigo Jones | West Country Fires | British Interiors - Architects
Inigo Jones was an unlikely candidate to have become the foremost architect of his generation, an architect so far in advance of his contemporaries that it was not until the 18th-century that the style he had espoused and developed found popularity, championed by Lord Burlington and other exponents of the Palladian movement.
Prior to his first royal appointment, Inigo Jones is known to have travelled throughout Italy, courtesy of the Earl of Arundel and perhaps, also, the Earl of Rutland, who is believed to have funded an earlier visit.
In fact, Jones began his working life designing scenery and costume for court masques (frequently in alliance with Ben Jonson until their famous rift in 1631), it is strange then that many of his buildings were to become the backdrop for so much real drama and tragedy.
