New British Works: Today – Tomorrow


10.00 AM - 5.00 PM

Monday to Saturday (closed on Sundays)

British architecture today is a global venture. From airports to art galleries, stadia to skyscrapers, practices based in the UK are bringing to life some of the most outstanding and celebrated structures in the world. For many architectural firms, working internationally is a significant part of what they do, and their collective talent is firmly established as one of the UK’s most successful creative exports.

With a global reputation for expertise and innovation,the UK is a place not only to find space to work, but somewhere to learn, exchange ideas, experiment and collaborate. But why here? How has the UK incubated such success?

Featuring new international projects by a range of practices, and guest contributions from experts and commentators, this exhibition explores the characteristics that have made British creativity such a potent force.

Part of a season of exhibitions and events inspired the BBC series The Brits Who Built the Modern World #BritsExhibition

If you are an RIBA Chartered Practice and have a project overseas that was completed or is underway in 2013 and 2014, we would like to hear from you.
