Be inspired by architecture at this week-long creative summer school. Develop a wide range of artistic skills with guidance from industry experts. Be inspired by architecture at this week-long creative summer school in partnership with the British Library. Led by visual artist Liam O'Connor, the course includes daily talks and show-and-tells by RIBA and British Library curators, tours exploring the architectural design of RIBA and British Library buildings, off-site visits to explore inspiring architecture and practical creative experimentation including bookbinding, drawing, photography and architectural model making.
