About

Join Sir John Soane Museum's Senior Curator, Owen Hopkins, for a 45 minute tour of The Return of the Past: Postmodernism in British Architecture.

Hear about the early, radical moment of this controversial architectural movement as the curator guides you through the drawings, models and building fragments that make up the exhibition, many of which have never been publicly exhibited before.

The exhibition focuses on five of Postmodernism’s principle protagonists – Terry Farrell, Piers Gough, Jeremy Dixon, John Outram and James Stirling/Michael Wilford – and includes photographs, press clippings and full-scale replicas from the 1980's. The tour will take place across the Soane Museum’s exhibition galleries and first floor rooms.
