Building with Light: the Legacy of Robert Elwall
An International Symposium on Architectural Photography – London, 13-14 November 2014
RIBA Royal Institute of British Architects British Architectural Library
2014-17-10

The Royal Institute of British Architects will host an international symposium on architectural photography in conjunction with the first major retrospective of the British architectural photographer Edwin Smith (1912-1971), whose prolific work helped redefine the notion of post WW II Britishness.

The symposium will honour the legacy of Robert Elwall (1953-2012), an acclaimed British historian of architectural photography and curator, since 1976, of the RIBA's Photographs Collection that now bears his name.  With some million and a half architectural images, the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection is one of the most extensive resources for the study of the influence of photography on architecture and the creative process.
