A Place to Call Home: RIBA Exhibition on History of UK Housing

This spring the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) will present a major exhibition entitled “A Place to call Home,” with guest curator Sarah Beeny. The exhibition looks back over the last 250 years of the everyday British home – from the first Georgian terraces through to today’s housing developments and flats. Through over 120 stunning images and drawings from the RIBA collections, along with models and advertising posters, A Place to Call Home tells the story of the many social, economic and design developments that have resulted in our past and present homes. It explores why they look the way they do, who they were built for, how they were sold to us and the impact of our home on our day to day life and sense of identity.
