Sir John Soane’s Museum architecture exhibition 2015
By exploring the intricacies of this relationship, the John Soane’s Museum collection also traces the wider development of the architecture profession from Elizabethan times through to the Victorian era.
Look out for interesting case studies such as the John Soane Dulwich Picture Gallery designs and his work to construct Holy Trinity Church, Marylebone. You’ll also spy other British architectural pioneers, such as Sir Christopher Wren’s Royal Naval College. An array of never-before seen drawings, models, correspondence and more illustrate the various client roles in the architectural process: private and public clients, the state as a client, and even the posthumous client.
A particular highlight is the recently discovered drawing by Soane of the façade of the museum – one of very few drawings by the architect of his home, which makes for an exceptional setting for this unique architecture exhibition.
