Spotlight on Building Modern Britain: Tour and Reception at the Royal College of Physicians on Wednesday 12 September 2018

American Friends are welcome to join the RIBA Patrons of Architecture for a Spotlight on Building Modern Britain Tour and Reception at the Royal College of Physicians on Wednesday 12 September 2018, 5pm to 8pm.

The Royal College of Physicians in Regent’s Park is considered to be one of architect Denys Lasdun’s most successful creations. Barnabas Calder, a historian of architecture and Lasdun expert will lead an exclusive tour of the building exploring one of the finest examples of 20th century ar­chitecture in London. The tour of the Grade I listed College building will be followed by a reception in Censors Room where we will hear from Adrian Steel, Director of Collections and Programmes at the RIBA about the Building Modern Britain project designed to reveal our most important but uncatalogued archival and photographic collections relating to some of the UK’s most loved and controversial 20th century buildings.

RSVP by Wednesday 5 September to Arina Zharikova 020 7307 3701 or patrons@riba.org.
