Erection date: 8/11/1934
On the Weymouth Street facade there are 5 figures carved in relief by Copnall. They are unlabelled but one can tell that they represent, left to right: a painter, a sculptor, Sir Christopher Wren (an architect, clearly the most important), an engineer and a labourer. Copnall also did the central figure (Architectural Inspiration) on the Portland Place facade, which you can see him carving in our picture of him.

This building, opened in 1934, was designed by G Grey Wornum for the Royal Institute of British Architects. Listed in 1970, it was one of the very first examples of modern architecture to be so recognised. The external carvings are well-covered at Ornamental Pleasures and again.
