Discover a vision for London by one of Britain’s greatest architects.

Robert Adam had a long and enduring connection to London, establishing his practice here in 1758 and remaining in the city until his death in 1792. There is a greater density of his work in this city than anywhere else. This exhibition is the first time the architect’s work across the capital as a whole has been examined in a London museum.

On display are some of Sir John Soane’s Museum’s most beautiful and influential designs for Adam’s projects in the city, showcasing his ground-breaking neo-classical style. The exhibition examines the diverse range of projects he worked on, from those that survive such as the Admiralty Screen on Whitehall, and monuments in Westminster Abbey, to the grandiose and ambitious visions that were never built.

Robert Adam’s London offers a unique glimpse into one of the most fascinating chapters in the architectural history of London, and reflects on how the captial's skyline might have looked today if all of Adam’s innovative work had become a reality.
