The 'Adam style' is known to millions today from the interior decoration of late 18th century country houses. But it is less well known that Robert Adam and his brother James aspired to achieve greater recognition in other types of building, where their highest principles might be realized in stone.
This introduction to Robert Adam's architecture gives particular emphasis to the thoughts and personal ambitions behind his designs and buildings. Setting Adam in the context of his time, it also loos at some of the sources of his inspiration - particularly his Grand Tour to Italy - as well as contemporaries' reactions to the 'Adam style'.
Fully illustrated with examples of the Adam brothers' work, the book reconsiders the familiar image of Robert Adam by exploring both his work and his mind.
