Have attended talks here, but think their exhibitions and bookshop really set it out from the rest and showcases the variety of the architecture world. We visited the 'Forms of Industry' and 'Architectural adventures in mass media' exhibitions'. The first a more delicate comparison of photographic biopsies of industry - like half a container ship, almost Damien Hirst style! The latter an intro to virtual reality and history of architecture's inherent links to forms of communication. Both were free, accessible and intriguing - everything here seems to project a curation from people fascinated in their work, without being over indulging. The building and area add to this feeling of course. A great place to bring teenage nieces/nephews in considering career ideas I would imagine - or for general interest in the build environment for others.

We visited the RIBA HQ to see two exhibitions: LÁSZLÓ MOHOLY-NAGY IN BRITAIN: BETWEEN THE NEW VISION AND THE NEW BAUHAUS and BEYOND BAUHAUS - MODERNISM IN BRITAIN 1933 TO 1966. Both were very interesting and well presented. I particularly liked the Moholy-Nagy as it was set in the better gallery space. The building itself is also interesting to explore. The Cafe was good but the service rather slow. There is a small but good architectural bookshop.

Maybe it was hope over expectation but was rather disappointed to see the size of the gallery space at RIBA. That said the exhibition itself contained a nice selection of items, mainly architectural drawings but also including photographs, publicity materials, video and a few quirky other items. Sadly the lighting was a tad subdued so it meant a lot of squinting to read the notes on each exhibit. However there is a extra brownie point for having the friendliest security at any exhibition I’ve attended!

Having enjoyed watching 'Landscape Artist of the Year' on Sky we visited to see Fujiko Rose's painting she completed for winning the competion. It is a stunning piece of work, the television cannot do it justice.

I had been meaning to visit for some time, but had to see the Bauhaus exhibition as a fan of the movement. A very small exhibit but interesting to see how Bauhaus influenced british buildings. Excellent book shop for architecture fans.
