Denys Lasdun opened to public

The RIBA has opened the door on its archive of Denys Lasdun

Lasdun was behind some of the country’s best Modernist buildings, including the Royal College of Physicians in Regent’s Park (1958-64) and the Brutalist University of East Anglia (1963-69) and National Theatre (1964-76).

As well as models, papers, drawings, photographs and film, the collection includes correspondence with leading architects (including Le Corbusier, Norman Foster and Zaha Hadid) politicians (such as James Callaghan) and critics (including Nikolaus Pevsner and Ernst Gombrich).

It also features notes of discussions and phone calls which shaped some of Lasdun’s works and a 2m-wide model of an unbuilt scheme for the National Theatre and Opera House.
