Guardian and Observer guides to British Architecture

Guardian and Observer guides to British Architecture

The weekend saw the publication of the Guardian & Observer guides to British Architecture . If you missed them they are also available online, but without some of the images from the RIBA that went into the printed version.

In all, 18 images from the RIBA Library Photographs Collections were featured. Here are a few images from the RIBA that were used to help illustrate the story of architecture in Britain from the end of the Roman Empire to the present day:

    That staircase is stunning and the Chimney piece, breath taking. One can only look upon in awe and respect the minds that created such beauty.
