Description

See new creative works that unpack narratives of gender, race and imperialism at 66 Portland Place.

Opened in 1934, when the modern architectural profession was being forged, RIBA’s Grade II* listed home can tell us a lot about the values and beliefs of architects in that period, and of wider society.

In this exhibition, a variety of new artistic interventions interrogate and respond to the complex narratives within specific interior features of 66 Portland Place – the Jarvis Mural and Florence Hall Dominion Screen.

You’re invited to help uncover the building’s complicated history and share your hopes for the future of architecture and the profession.
