The Future of the Past: Treasures from the RIBA Collections

Valeria Carullo

The British Architectural Library at the RIBA is the largest and most comprehensive resource in the United Kingdom for research and information on all aspects of architecture. Its collections are one of the top three in the world and the finest in Europe.

A wealth of subjects in architecture, from prehistory to the present, is encompassed by the collections which contain over four million items in a variety of languages and formats. Allied subjects such as construction, engineering, landscape architecture, interior design and decoration, planning and construction law are also well representation.

This is the third in a series on Special Collections.  The other lectures in this series are on the following collections:
    Anatomy Museums
    The Guildhall Library
    The Library and Archives of the Society of Friends
    Lambeth Palace Library  
    Scotland Yard's Crime Museum
    The Royal Horticultural Society's Lindley Library
    St. Paul's Cathedral
