When travelling on the Tube today you may have spotted posters for the latest V&A+RIBA Architecture Partnership exhibition. Now open at the Victoria and Albert Museum is Underground Journeys: Charles Holden’s designs for London Transport.

The posters are aptly sited for an exhibition that examines the work of Charles Holden and his architectural practice, Adams Holden and Pearson, for London Transport. Holden’s collaboration with Frank Pick in creating an integrated approach to design and architecture is also investigated.

Admission is free and the exhibition will be open until 13 February 2011.
The V&A is open daily 10.00am – 5.45pm, Friday 10.00am – 10pm.


Tell us below what you think of the exhibition and where you have spotted the posters.
