Picture This! A celebration of RIBA Competitions with photographic images
4 Mar – 3 May 2010
The Florence Hall, RIBA, London
Some of the UK’s best known buildings were designed as part a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) competition. The exhibition, Picture This!, opening on 4 March at the RIBA headquarters in London, will display some of the UK’s most striking buildings of the last 25 years and offers an insight into the world of architectural competitions.
The RIBA organises and runs competitions to encourage excellence in design on behalf of a wide range of clients – both public and private – which have resulted in a variety of landmark projects and iconic structures. These range from major public projects such as London’s Millennium Bridge, The Sage Gateshead, Baltic and Wembley Stadium to the Urban Splash Tutti Frutti housing project and smaller structures, such as the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill on Sea and the Swivelling Wind Shelter in Blackpool.
RIBA Competitions, established in Leeds over 25 years ago, holds a photographic archive of past projects from which images for the exhibition will be drawn.
Speaking about the exhibition, Louise Harrison, RIBA Competitions Manager, said “We have a fantastic archive of amazing images and have grasped this opportunity to share them. We have tried to capture the spirit of what competitions are all about and hope visitors enjoy our eclectic collection.”
The Florence Hall, RIBA is located at 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD
