Royal Institute of British Architects
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is the head office for the governing body of architects in the UK. The building itself is testament to the golden period of art deco design during the 1930s. Within its large structure is one of the largest collections of architectural design drawings and photographs. Across any given year the body runs a number of public exhibitions, utilising the extensive library it has at its disposal.
RIBA came into being back in 1834 and is widely recognised around the world for its exceptional standards and practices. Over ten thousand architects are signed up to the organisation, and it plays host to thousands of students each year eager to learn more.
