The Sage concert hall in Gateshead

Retrospective show marks 175 years of RIBA

The CUBE Gallery in Manchester is exhibiting 175 images of competition winning projects to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

The RIBA organises and runs competitions to encourage excellence in design for public and private clients. Past competitions include London's Millennium Bridge, the Sage Gateshead (pictured), Wembley Stadium, Urban Splash's Tutti Frutti housing project in Manchester and the Swivelling Wind Shelter in Blackpool.

Louise Harrison, RIBA competitions manager, said "We have a fantastic archive of amazing images and have grasped this opportunity to share them. We have tried to capture the spirit of what competitions are all about and hope visitors enjoy our eclectic collection."

  • The exhibition will be at CUBE from 10 July to 5 October 2009. The gallery is at 113-115 Portland Street, Manchester.
