The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has launched an open consultation on the future use of its landmark Art Deco HQ building at 66 Portland Place in London W1.

The first part of the consultation strategy is an online survey, to be followed by focus group sessions to gather more detail.

RIBA Client Advisor, Sarah Williams said:

“This survey is the start of a detailed process which will include defining the role that 66 Portland Place plays in the RIBA’s long term vision and values. Our detailed consultation will gather views and ideas from our members, staff and other users of the building including visitors, neighbours, meeting room clients, cultural partners, sponsors and patrons.

“I encourage everyone to participate to help us shape the use of this important building for the next 80 years.”

66 Portland Place is open to the public and RIBA members alike and is home to the British Architectural Library, Architecture Gallery, RIBA Bookshop, President’s Office, RIBA Council Chamber, first floor Bistro and ground floor Café/Bar and has a number of dedicated spaces available for private hire events and conferences, including the Jarvis Auditorium and the Florence Hall. In 2015 RIBA's administrative staff relocated to modern office space at 76 Portland Place.
