The Soane Honors


We are thrilled to announce this year’s Soane Honors dinner on October 20 at the Racquet and Tennis Club in New York City.

Every year the Soane Foundation celebrates Sir John Soane’s singular contributions as an architect and educator by bestowing The Soane Honors on present-day innovators, leaders, and visionaries in the fields of architecture, design, urban planning, preservation, and philanthropy at a celebratory gala dinner in an architecturally significant venue in New York City. Honors proceeds benefit Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation and ultimately the Soane Museum in London.
