Aspect

Plan of a church approached by steps within a wide insulated space. At the front is a curved path emanating from the bottom corners, which passes in front of the church. Towards the rear of the church there is another curving path from one corner to the other which passes in front of the rear of the church. Around the border is stone curbing with indications in blue for the placement of railings. There are faded pencil markings perhaps showing the arrangement of the drainage system similar to SM 54/5/5 and SM 54/5/7

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.
