Variant Comparatives, August-September 1826 (13)

Design Note:-
This sequence of designs returns to several of the ideas first drawn in the flurry of alternative proposals which make up the fourth alternative scheme prepared in response to the Select Committee’s intervention of March 1824. Dated here to August - September 1826, many are clearly in the hand of Charles Richardson. The fine penmanship and the experimentation with coloured washes (from the delicate treatment of SM 53/8/27 to the intense depth of SM 53/8/29) suggest experimental development. The possibility of retaining the façade as originally built is addressed in SM 53/8/33 and SM 53/8/49. Advancing upon the visual concerns raised by the façade’s curved corners, the design for projecting square turrets articulated with a giant Corinthian order is explored (e.g. SM 53/8/22).
