The artists

Along with the new version of Traces of Living in the kitchens and Globe Table in the Breakfast Room, this is one of three works that was made specially for the show. Sir John Soane undertook the Grand Tour as part of his architectural education, and this work represents a Grand Tour that Soane might take were he alive today. In addition to showing works of architecture that Soane actually visited, such as the Temple of Vesta at Tivoli and La Scala opera house in Milan, it also shows projects such as the Generali Tower in Milan, by Zaha Hadid.
