Join Sam Jacob for an in-depth tour of the exhibition to hear how perspective has not only been used to illustrate the world but also how it creates and organises the world. Learn more about the diverse range of RIBA Collection items on display, from rare books dating back to the Renaissance to contemporary works, and how the system of perspective dictates how everything in the gallery is arranged.
