Royal Institute of British Architects is the UK body for architecture
and the architectural profession. They provide support for our 40,500
members worldwide in the form of training, technical services,
publications and events, and set standards for the education of
architects, both in the UK and overseas.
They work with government to improve the design quality of public buildings, new homes and new communities.
Their annual award schemes recognise outstanding architecture and culminate in the RIBA Stirling Prize.
At the Victoria and Albert Museum, the RIBA hosts exhibitions,
archives, talks and shared study facilities in partnership with the
V&A. And, from our London headquarters, they help the public to learn
more about the built environment through information services, websites
and a library that includes an unrivalled collection of books,
photographs and manuscripts.
