AN ANSWER TO ASTRAGAL'S MUSINGS...
Astragal - 'in Las Vegas' no less - wonders when the RIBA will begin researching the history of the institute (AJ 02.06.05).
Dr Irena Murray and her team in the British Architectural Library are already assisting such a project, working closely with the historian and author, Alan Powers. Publication of his definitive account is scheduled for 2009 - our 175th anniversary year.
