Following an ambitious fundraising campaign during the pandemic, work has now begun on restoring Sir John Soane's Drawing Office, the oldest surviving example of an architectural drawing office of its kind.
Completion in early 2023 will allow visitors to the Soane to explore the Office for the first time. We will also introduce new interactive virtual tours and interpretation to enable digital audiences from around the world to discover more of the Museum online than ever before.
There's going to be so much to share with you as this project proceeds over 2022 and beyond. Get the latest news direct by joining our newsletter.
Artist at Soane
Through a new residency programme, artists and makers will be able to take inspiration from working in the Drawing Office, just as Soane’s pupils once did. Starting in the Spring of 2023, two residents will be hosted annually, for three months each, during the Spring and the Autumn.
In addition to working in dry materials in the Office, residents will be able to draw inspiration from the Museum’s collections, archive, library, exhibitions and education programme, related scholarship, or commercial operations.
Residents will receive a fee and support from staff across the Museum over the three-month residency period.
