Research – Bank of England as Ruin

here are the Consols Office’s drawing (in ruin and as planned) photos, where it is made obvious that both Soane and Gandy were influenced by Piranesi’s etching.

Gandy’s drawing of the Consols Office before plastering is particularly interesting, it is showing the building in construction while giving it the light quality as Piranesi’s etching in ruin.
