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.
