Drawing venue

  • Comment

Various rumours about the location of the riba's special meeting to consider the future of its drawings collection suggested that the venue might be an ashram in the Oxfordshire countryside, a Cambridge College, or indeed somewhere in London. In fact it will be held on 23-25 April at Nuneham Courtenay near Abingdon. And what an appropriate choice. The house is Grade I-listed and the grounds are by Capability Brown. 'Architects tend to like old buildings,' ppriba and library committee chair Rod Hackney tells me. And besides, drawings curator Charles Hind 'has wanted to visit it for years'.
