Sir John Soane's London house is undoubtedly one of the most unusual works ever produced by an architect. Soane's highly individual interpretations of classical language, combined with his singular spatial solutions, show that he was an artist well ahead of his time, almost a pioneer of the Modern movement. His great and unusual gift for creating monumental scale in a confined space makes his house a rare visual pleasure. An Act of Parliament in 1833 secured Soane's house for the nation and for posterity. Soane gave instructions that the house should be preserved in all its detail as he left it on his death in 1837, at the advanced age of 84. This means that we can still experience the unusual visual world of this remarkable architect today. Soane altered and added to his house over a period of 40 years. His deep conviction that man can be educated and bettered by studying examples of work in the visual arts of many periods made him an insatiable collector and his house is an Aladdin's cave of objects, paintings and curios that make it a source of great fascination and enjoyment. This publication in the Opus series is a rare but successful record showing the principal spaces in their overall effect and in detail -- a most difficult task considering the spatial complexities and small dimensions of some of the rooms. Richard Bryant demonstrates his enormous skill as a photographer by capturing Soane's idiosyncratic and rich conceptions in his images, which are a masterpiece of architectural documentation. The text describes the history of the building and its complicated development, together with a short biography of its creator.

This book of essays is published to coincide with an exhibition of the same title at Sir John Soane's Museum, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London (October 23, 2015 March 26, 2016) commemorating the 200th anniversary of Soane's beloved wife Eliza's death on November 22, 1815. Its relevance to Soane studies, is, however, much broader, with essays shedding new light on the architecture of legacy in Sir John Soane's Museum; Soane's preoccupation with memorialization as revealed in the design process for the Soane family tomb; the legacy of his drawings collection; and Soane's attempt shortly before his death to sustain future interest in his collections by creating a series of time capsules. The essays, written by the curatorial team at Sir John Soane's Museum, are accompanied by 39 illustrations in full color, some of them published for the first time."
