John Soane, Architect

£14.99

Product description

Paperback First Edition published in 1999 by the Royal Academy of Arts. Illustrated buff coloured front cover with red spine. Red and white title on front cover and white title on spine. slight wear to lower edge of cover and cover corners. Pages very slightly yellowed towards edges. Clean and tightly bound with no inscriptions.

Without doubt the most brilliant architectural innovator of his day, Sir John Soane ra (17531837) displayed a remarkable ability to adapt and modernise the language of classical architecture. The range of his built designs, from the ingenuity of his own house in Lincolns Inn Fields (later left in trust to the nation) 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 Soanes architectural achievements as well as his life and public role. It reproduces over one hundred of Soanes drawings and contains specially commissioned photographs of his original models and existing buildings. Contributors discuss all of the architects major commissions, including the Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Law Courts at Westminster, and the Bank of England.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
