Editorial Reviews

"This is a neatly condensed version of Watkin's masterful intellectual and professional contextualization of Sir John Soane's lectures as professor of architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, provides valuable insights on both the intellectual fabric of the Enlightenment and its arcitectural affects, as well as the design practices of Soane. The text is lucid in argument, and literary style, being further clarified by well-chosen illustrations, many from drawings by the architect. In this abridged form the book will prove especially useful to faculty, researchers, graduate students, and professionals." Choice
