See what architecture has to offer

As the Royal Institute of British Architects, we're uniquely positioned to share the best of what architecture has to offer in our exhibitions and displays, and have been curating exhibitions since 1921.

Our exhibitions programme looks closely into architectural movements, styles and ideas from throughout history. The exhibitions showcase items from our world-class collections and draw on our relationships with architects, too.
