  • Came here to visit the institute and also to see an exhibition of the 2019 Royal Gold Medal winner, Sir Nicolas Grimshaw. Several exhibits showcase examples of his work along with descriptions, models and examples of architectural structures to help explain things further. The building itself is an nice example of Art Deco, but in a style very sympathetic to the surrounding fine buildings along Portland Place.
  • Rather excellent facilities with grand decor especially the upper hall wooden doors with animal motifs. Also in this hall were side panels with intricate historical representations i.e. a Roman legion above and Egyptian themed Palace. I imagine architects to be inspired by such environs.
