Sir John Soane's Bank of England, London, UK

The aim of this project was to create an animated virtual reconstruction of the Bank of England in the City of London. The bank was built in 1788-1833 to the design of John Soane (1753–1837).

The Bank of England Museum funded the Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA) at Bath, to model a central route through Soane's demolished Bank of England, as part of the Soane Exhibition held at the Royal Academy in London in 1999. The exhibition subsequently travelled to the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio, Vicenza; to the Hôtel de Rohan - Centre Historique des Archives Nationales, Paris; and to the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal (16 May to 3 September 2001).
