Lasdun Late : Modernism at the medical museum




Banish the cold and midwinter blues with a dose of determined mid-century cool.

Hot foot it down to the most happening fifty year old pile in town, park-side design classic and doctors’ des res par excellence, the Royal College of Physicians, for an evening of modernist magic.

Kick off your Cuban heels, strike a pose like it’s 1964 and take a peek behind the scenes at man of the moment Denys Lasdun’s clean-lined sculptural masterpiece.

Catch an exclusive late view of ‘The anatomy of a building’ our acclaimed retrospective of the uber architect’s work, celebrating the centenary of his birth and 50 years of his grade 1 listed triumph the RCP: “… subtle and beautiful… an unqualified success… Just what the doctors ordered!”The Guardian.

Swing out to live lounge core marimba jazz courtesy of the Royal College of Music. Create your own hip cat look with our retro dressing up box and capture the results to win a design bible fit for the finest Danish coffee table. Celebrate the music of Bond in a building worthy of his arch adversary, Goldfinger, or fight global domination with the Thunderbirds in our 60s board game library.

For more cerebral stimulation join our Eames chair-ensconced ‘style council’ led by the Director of the 20th Century Society, Catherine Croft, to discuss the aims and influence of modernist architecture in one of its most iconic settings.

Want more? How about contemporary classical music, a pop-up baroque dining room and a free drink for all?

What could be better built to defy the short day doldrums?
