First-year students from the University of East London participated in a Library induction and workshop last week. Their visit to the RIBA was part of a larger project exploring in-between spaces in architecture and design.
The day began with a guided tour of 66 Portland Place followed by a presentation on the RIBA’s collections and student resources in the Library’s Education Room. Students then spent the morning studying and discussing photographs, drawings, models and other material related to the London Zoo, a site students had visited on a previous occasion.
In the afternoon, students sketched and photographed in-between spaces in 66 Portland Place before returning to the Education Room for a tutorial with Senior Lecturer Reem Charif.
Students described their day at the RIBA as, “food for thought,” “interesting, helpful and engaging,” “inspiring” and “A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!”
