Architect. He was responsible for planning the layout in 1825 of Hyde Park in London. He studied under the tutorship of his father James Burton (1761-1837) and then John Nash for whom he elaborated on the designs of Cornwall Terrace, facing London's Regents Park. He was also a noted garden designer in the classical style which included the Spring House at Kew Gardens. This greenhouse made of iron and glass was the largest in the world at the time. He was also responsible for designing the Wellington Arch at Green Park which was a memorial to the Duke of Wellington and was built as a major entrance to London at the time. In 1830, he also designed Charing Cross Hospital. (bio by: s.canning)
