Narrative Environment: Sir John Soane Museum - Currently no debate


Sir John Soane was an architect and typical polymath of his time (he lived from 1753 to 1837). He came from a working class background and rose to the top of his profession. He built the Bank of England (though his work has been largely destroyed by later pomposities) and Dulwich Picture Gallery.

There are several parallel narratives threading through this building (his former home), the principal one being a narrative of secrets and discovery, which in fact acts as a framing narrative for the others. Go discover!
