Tchoban Foundation Die klassischen Ordnungen: Myth, Meaning and Beauty in the Drawings of Sir John Soane | 22.09.2022.-15.01.2023

Editors’ Choice

This new exhibition at the Museum of Architectural Drawing is the fourth collaborative project with Sir John Soane’s Museum in London and is dedicated to a selection of masterful drawings by Sir John Soane (1753-1837) and his office. Soane was the leading neoclassical architect in late Georgian Britain, and many of the drawings on display were produced for the lectures he gave as Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts in London between 1809 and 1820. These colourful masterful renderings served to illustrate the classical orders in architecture. The orders are a series of architectural styles developed in ancient Greece and adopted and adapted by the Romans. For Soane, a proper understanding of the three main ancient orders – Doric, Ionic and Corinthian – was central to architecture.

The classical orders have their roots in the ancient temple architecture, especially in the columns and the entablature as support for the roof. The different orders differ in the way the columns with their bases, shafts and capitals and the entablature are decorated. Although the only classical treatise on architecture that has survived from antiquity – De architectura (c. 25 BC) by the Roman architect Vitruvius – names only four orders, most architectural historians list five: the Tuscan, the Doric, the Ionic, the Corinthian and the composite order.

Sir John Soane’s Museum
Sir John Soane’s former home at 13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London has been a museum since the early 19th century. Designed by the renowned architect, the building houses his world-famous collection of paintings, sculptures, art objects and models and is original in its furnishings and design as it was at the time of Soane’s death in 1837. Today, the museum provides access to Soane’s legacy in its broadest sense: architecture and design, creative originality, education and outreach, and connections between the past and present that the museum and its collection reveal.
