The Royal Institute of British Architects champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and our members. We provide the standards, training, support and recognition that put our members – in the UK and overseas – at the peak of their profession. With government, we work to improve the design quality of public buildings, new homes and new communities.
From exhibitions and talks to conferences and awards, the RIBA advances architectural and design excellence through engagement with all. As the UK’s national architecture centre, we have an internationally recognised collection of over four million books, periodicals, drawings, photographs, models and other archives in the RIBA British Architectural Library. You can enjoy the RIBA Awards, including the RIBA Stirling Prize, the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture and a varied programme of exhibitions, talks and other public events, both at the RIBA and further afield.
In addition, we collaborate with the Victoria and Albert Museum, as part of the V&A+RIBA Architecture Partnership.
