The RIBA photography collection could be renamed in honour of late British Architectural Library curator and assistant director Robert Elwall
RIBA honorary librarian Paul Davis said: ‘Elwall transformed [the photo library] into the greatest architectural photography collection in the world. [Naming it after him] would be an appropriate way of remembering him.’
An RIBA photography contest in his memory is planned to launch within weeks. Elwall, who had pancreatic cancer, passed away on Wednesday, 7 March 2012.
