An exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum reveals the bold vision for London from a leading architect of the 18th century.

Robert Adam’s London, which runs until 11 March,is an in-depth look at the work of the Scottish architect who helped change the face of the capital city.

The free exhibition features designs for his most famous buildings, including Buckingham Palace interiors, the Admiralty Screen on Whitehall and Portland Place. As well as showcasing Adam’s neo- classical style, there are glimpses of projects that were never realised, such as this proposed building at Lincoln’s Inn (1772-74).
