As a tie-in with the recently completed homage to British architects on BBC4, their spiritual home at RIBA is holding an exhibition of some of their work.

It’s a modest affair, lots of drawings on walls, some in cabinets, and some models.

They claim to have 190 objects and drawings on display, which is probably correct, but it felt smaller.

Of course, the big cat-nip for architecture fans is models, and sadly, this display has just a few choice pieces.

If you went to the huge display at Cannon Street in 2012 then you will be disappointed, but if you missed it, then the RIBA display can be considered its little brother.

If you’re in the area, or a massive fan of modern buildings, then it’s certainly worth a brief visit.

The exhibition is open Monday – Saturday, 10am to 5pm until the 27th May.

Entry is free.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
