House of Architecture

Read more about our ambitious proposals to build an accessible and thriving centre of architecture inspiration and connection, and to share our collections and knowledge with a global audience.

House of Architecture

House of Architecture is the future of RIBA. It is a transformative programme to make architecture more accessible for everyone – our members, our profession, the world.

Building on our nearly 200 years of history, a major investment will galvanise our mission to support architects to make the future a better place.

It will reinforce RIBA’s identity as an outward looking cultural institution, help us promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of architecture among a diverse audience, and celebrate our members’ work. 

We will invest in:

  1. Our Collections: Bringing together and sharing our unique body of architectural knowledge and history more widely than ever before.

  2. Our Digital Technology: Creating a vastly improved online experience – widening our reach and expanding our audiences, across the UK and globally.

  3. Our Headquarters: Making long overdue and urgently needed upgrades to our London Headquarters to make it more accessible, sustainable and welcoming.
