The Big Architecture Family Day
Celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy with a day of architecture activities for families exploring our new premises in Burlington Gardens.
Discover the RA’s newly expanded home and consider the ways in which the identity of the RA has changed over its 250 year history at this free full-day programme of activities for children and families.
Find out more about architect David Chipperfield’s redevelopment and how he has linked two buildings of differing architectural characters to create a campus that meets the needs of a contemporary arts institution.
We encourage adults and children to join our programme workshops, drawing tours and the ever-popular Lego architecture challenge, to have a closer look at the new architecture of the RA and to discover how architects and architecture affect the identity of a place.
The Big Architecture Family Day is part of the London Festival of Architecture and Open-City’s Archikids

With an exhibition designed and curated in collaboration with Renzo Piano and his team, we invite you to encounter architecture that touches the human spirit.
