The V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership was established in 2004 by the RIBA and the Victoria and Albert Museum to promote the understanding and enjoyment of architecture. Together the RIBA and the V&A opened the UK's first permanent gallery of architecture. 

The partnership brings together the holdings of the RIBA Library Drawings and Archives Collections with the V&A's collections of architectural drawings, photographs and artefacts in one location - the V&A in London. It also combines the expertise of each institution to create an exciting programme of exhibitions and talks.

Free education programmes using the facilities, study rooms and collections of both institutions are available to schools, colleges and universities.
