The V&A and RIBA Architecture Partnership is the name given to the initiative of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Royal Institute of British Architects to promote the understanding and enjoyment of architecture.

Together the V&A and the RIBA have opened the UK's first permanent architecture gallery and new study rooms at the V&A.

The Partnership brings together the RIBA's drawings and archives collections and the V&A's collections of architectural drawings and photographs at one location - the V&A in London. It also brings together the expertise of each institution in an exciting new programme of temporary exhibitions at the V&A, at the RIBA, and on tour.

There is also an educational programme and study and teaching rooms. Go to the links below for information:
