Discover the RA’s newly expanded home and consider the ways in which the identity of the RA has changed over its 250 year history at this free full-day programme of activities for children and families.
Find out more about architect David Chipperfield’s redevelopment and how he has linked two buildings of differing architectural character and created a campus to meet the needs of a contemporary arts institution.
We encourage adults and children to join our programme workshops, drawing tours and the ever-popular LEGO Architecture Challenge, to have a closer look at the new architecture of the RA and to discover how architects and architecture affect the identity of a place.
The Lego Architecture Challenge takes place across our Burlington Gardens site from 2 - 4pm. Join us and watch three of the UK’s leading architectural practices battle it out to create the most innovative and imaginative 'identity' project. We invite the practices to consider London's identity and come up with proposals that are typical of the capital, exploring and expanding on its multifaceted nature. Join us and see how architects consider their surrounding built environment and forge a project's own distinct personality, all in Lego form.
