Freestyle - Architectural Adventures in Mass Media

Our latest exhibition will take you on a journey through time from the Renaissance to postmodernism, through virtual reality.

RIBA is reopening its Architecture Gallery

From 2 July to 4 September, you can visit 'Freestyle - Architectural Adventures in Mass Media', a RIBA commission with Space Popular, on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm.

To make sure everyone is as safe and comfortable as possible we have introduced an advance booking option and are limiting the number of people to six in the gallery at any one time. Each booking slot lasts 30 minutes. If you require longer time in the gallery, we encourage you to book two consecutive slots.

Freestyle takes you on a journey through time from Renaissance to postmodernism. Drawing on our world-class collections, Space Popular uses virtual reality to examine styles of the past and to consider the technology's impact on contemporary spaces and buildings. Historic artefacts will be displayed alongside newly commissioned content, inviting you to enter a beguiling virtual universe to experience how popular cultures and technologies impact architecture and its style evolution.

Book your exhibition time slot.
