Mash-Up: Josephine Baker & Sir John Soane

In 1988, I was first introduced to the Section and the concept of spatial experience through examples of Adolf Loos and Sir John Soane among others.

Thanks Peter.

The house Loos designed for Josephine Baker was never built. I visited Soane’s house now museum on the Square at Lincoln’s Inn Fields while on my year abroad in London, 1989-1990.

(That same year in England, I met the woman who would later be my wife. Thanks Laura. A very good year indeed.)
