dbo:abstract
  • Shaw's Corner fue la principal residencia del célebre escritor irlandés George Bernard Shaw; ahora un edificio histórico propiedad de National Trust abierto al público. Dentro de la casa, los cuartos siguen conservando su aspecto original, y tanto el jardín como el escritorio de Shaw pueden ser visitados. La casa, del periodo eduardiano, posee una clara influencia del estilo propio del movimiento Arts and Crafts. Se encuentra emplazada en la pequeña villa de Ayot St. Lawrence, Hertfordshire, Inglaterra. Construida como una nueva rectoría para el pueblo en 1902, la casa fue el hogar de George Bernard Shaw desde 1906 hasta su muerte en 1950, dado que la iglesia de Inglaterra decidió que la casa era demásiado grande para el tamaño de la parroquia. Shaw y su esposa Charlotte se mudaron durante 1906 y compraron la casa en 1920 por el valor de 6220 libras al tiempo que extendieron el jardín cuando Shaw compró la tierra de su amigo Apsley Cherry-Garrard, una parcela de 1.4 hectáreas. Shaw es conocido por haber escrito muchos de sus trabajos importantes en una pequeña habitación anexa a su vivienda, situada en el fondo de su jardín.​​ la estructura minúscula, cerca de 20 metros cuadrados, fue construida en un marco central con columnas de acero y con una pista circular de modo que pudiera ser rotado en su eje para seguir el arco cambiante de la luz del solar a través del día.​ Shaw ubicó el cuarto de modo que quedara de espaldas a Londres, con el propósito de que los visitantes indeseados desistan de su visita al ser informados de que él estaba ausente "visitando la capital".​ (es)
  • Shaw's Corner was the primary residence of the renowned Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw; it is now a National Trust property open to the public as a writer's house museum. Inside the house, the rooms remain much as Shaw left them, and the garden and Shaw's writing hut can also be visited. The house is an Edwardian Arts and Crafts-influenced structure situated in the small village of Ayot St Lawrence, in Hertfordshire, England. It is 6 miles from Welwyn Garden City and 5 miles from Harpenden. Built as the new rectory for the village during 1902, the house was the home of playwright George Bernard Shaw from 1906 until his death in 1950. It was designed by local architects and local materials were used in its construction. The Church of England decided that the house was too large for the size of the parish, and let it instead. Shaw and his wife Charlotte Payne-Townshend relocated in 1906, and eventually bought the house and its land in 1920, paying £6,220. At the same time the garden was extended and Shaw bought land from his friend Apsley Cherry-Garrard, bringing the total to 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres). Shaw is known to have written many of his major works in a secluded, home-built revolving hut located at the bottom of his garden. The tiny structure of only 64 square feet (5.9 m2), was built on a central steel-pole frame with a circular track so that it could be rotated on its axis to follow the arc of the Sun's light during the day. Shaw dubbed the hut "London", so that unwanted visitors could be told he was away "visiting the capital". After Shaw's and his wife's deaths, their ashes were taken to Shaw's Corner, mixed and then scattered along footpaths and around the statue of Saint Joan in their garden. (en)
