John Soane (1753–1837) was the most brilliant architectural innovator of his day. His remarkable ability to adapt and modernise the language of classical architecture has proved to be a lasting influence, particularly in the late twentieth century. In his own day, he was on a level with leading European Neoclassicists, such as Ledoux and Schinkel. The demolition of his Bank of England in London was probably the single worst architectural disaster in Britain of the last century.
