Alternative preliminary design and finished drawing for a screen wall and gateway, c1764, unexecuted (2)

Adam's design for the screen wall is the only graphic evidence from his office for the proposed scheme for rebuilding in 1764. See scheme notes.

Rowan has pointed out that the motifs and inscription for Adam volume 9/195 'suggests that Adam at one stage intended to take the order from J.D. Le Roy’s Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece', although the finished drawing makes use of the Spalatro order instead.
