Royal visit.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) are one of the collaborators for Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture. I've heard so much about RIBA and talked to a few people there, so I jumped at the opportunity to visit their headquarters, described as an 'Art Deco landmark', in Portland Place by Regent Park.

Corinna and I ascended the dreamy staircase to meet with Robert Elwood in the RIBA library to select photographs for inclusion in the 'British Modernism' section of the exhibition. It was a dream-come-true to sift through hundreds of photographs of the Barbican over the years. It's such a magical place. You'll have to come and see the exhibition to see which photographs we selected.

The etched glass, wood carvings, rich history and original quirks all make my heart skip-a-beat. I will definitely be back for more! The bookshop is also not to be missed. Corinna picked up THE Paffard Keatinge-Clay monograph, you can see her below triumphantly holding the bag (!). You will definitely be hearing more about Paffard from us, as we are big fans in every way.
