A roster of expert authors examine every aspect of Sir John Soane's (1753-1837) career and legacy.
Individual chapters focus on the design and construction of Soane's most renowned works, including London's Law Courts, the Bank of England, and Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Illustrated with diagrams and architectural models, as well as beautiful photographs showing the extraordinary interiors and exteriors of Soane's buildings
Without a doubt the most brilliant architectural innovator of his day, Sir John Soane (1753-1837) displayed a remarkable ability to adapt and modernize the language of classical architecture. The range of his built designs, from the ingenuity of his own house in London's Lincoln's Inn Fields (now Sir John Soane's Museum) to the opulence and originality of the Bank of England, places him on a par with other leading European neoclassicists, such as Ledoux and Schinkel.
His architectural vocabulary remains influential to this day. This landmark publication considers Soane's architectural achievements as well as his life and public role. It reproduces more than 100 of Soane's drawings and contains specially commissioned photographs of his original models and existing buildings. Contributors discuss all the architect's major commissions, including the Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Law Courts at Westminster, and the Bank of England.
