Move time


Staff at the RIBA are contemplating with a mixture of emotions their forthcoming move to different offices later this year. The intention is to turn No 66 into a serious revenue-raising venue, with rooms available for hire. This professional maison de passe will not, however, become the architecture centre first mooted by RIBA public affairs director Malcolm MacEwen in the mid-1970s, nor the library and drawings collection Mecca planned under Lord (Bill) Rodgers in the late '80s. Instead it will be filled with all sorts of transient people and professionals. For some reason, it is thought that dentists are keen on the institute.

Something to do with urban infill, perhaps.
