Symmetrical Elevation Variants, July-August 1826 (8)

Design Note:-
This sequence of designs is here dated to the end of July-August 1826, and can be associated with David Mocatta (see SM Vol 61/75). They are quickly-worked elevation studies which return to the idea Soane first recorded in 1823 of reconstructing the buildings to the east of Westminster Hall with a façade matching that of the New Law Courts to the south. Excepting SM Vol 61/79, these drawings all employ Gothic, with the façades flanking Westminster Hall showing variant degrees of elaboration and fenestration. The façades are effectively anchored by square or polygonal corner turrets. Soane would return to develop these ideas in his ‘Last Word’ scheme of 1828-29.
