'Adam Nathaniel Furman: The Roman Singularity’. The latest project to make use of Soane’s restored Kitchens, The Roman Singularity celebrates Rome as the pilgrimage site for the world’s imagination through drawings, film and an imaginary Roman City in 3D-printed ceramics.

Exhibited alongside The Roman Singularity will be Pasteeshio – a new sculpture that picks up on Soane's creative accumulation of historically resonant fragments into larger, evocative compositions – and a (temporary) mural of a world of patterns, called Capreeshio.

The Roman Singularity at the Sir John Soane's Museum explores Rome as the spatial equivalent of the internet, a place in which all of history, art and style is simultaneous and coextensive, merging into one a-historical and liberating atmosphere of storied objects.

Created by Furman for the UK Rome Prize for Architecture 2014–15, while living at the British School at Rome, the project involved unearthing and writing stories about various architectures within the metropolis, as well as architectures elsewhere that were inspired by the city, and souvenirs from it that were exported during the grand tour. New designs were created for each of these, with each being given its own fictional/historical tale.

Walks around the city were compressed into hand drawn Capriccios, and in turn the forms that coalesced in these architectural dalliances were used to create miniature buildings that encapsulated each of the stories, carefully fabricated out of ceramics using a combination of 3D printing and hand crafting. Together they form souvenirs of a contemporary architect’s grand tour, and create an imaginary Roman City in ceramics, drawings and film.

These postcards are choice extracts selected by Furman from this multimedia world.
