About the event

Many aspects of garden design were informed by experiments conducted  in the 18th century. Mausolea and spaces of remembrance were toyed with  by John Soane and his students to push their architectural potential.  Images of these designs echo the grandeur of earlier times and sites be  it monuments along the Via Delle Tombe in Pompeii or monuments of  Palmyra in Syria.

Most of these designs were never built, yet  their imprint on successive buildings and sites looms large in the  architectural record, particularly in the 19th century cemeteries.  Emulating the discovery many contemporary architects experienced as they  journeyed on the Continent and further afield, Sheldon will assess some  of these architectural sketches and how they would develop as the 18th  century progressed.
