V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership 2012 student study day: Talk


Study days

Study days give students the opportunity to delve into the collections to investigate a particular theme or area of research and hear from speakers in the field on the subject. These events often complement the programme of exhibitions held at 66 Portland Place and the Architecture Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Student events

Head over to the RIBA at 66 Portland Place or the V&A for a more social and informal introduction to the collections and V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership. Open Days and evenings are held throughout the year and include hands-on workshops by students and architects practices, short talks and a closer look at the collections.

Next event:
15 November 2013, V&A, more details soon.
