Founders of the Royal Institute of British Architects

Originally named the Royal Institute for British Architects in London, the institute was established by a group of prominent architects in 1834 for 'the general advancement of Civil Architecture and for promoting and facilitating the acquirement of the knowledge of the various arts and sciences connected therewith'. By 1837, a Royal Charter was passed under King William IV and by 1892 London had been removed from the institute's title. The institute moved to its purpose built and current location in Portland Place, London in 1934. The institute has developed as a regional organisational with a professional body of over 40,000 members worldwide. It continues to provide training, support, and seeks to improve the quality and design of homes, public buildings and communities.
