    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Thanks for the report. We went a week back and enjoyed it too - I thought the Eduardo Souto de Moura was the most successful (reminded me of Rachel Whiteread). Planning on going back with the kids as I think they'll enjoy the straws.

    Edit to add - a notice regarding the same:

    Really looking forward to this, have always loved the gold detailing and cherubs on the ceilings in there, will be great to be up amongst it on the viewing platform.

    I have a week off work and was planning to go to this tomorrow with my mum, as she's a member of the Royal Academy. But now going to Drew's funeral instead.

    Greebo 'scuse me, Mrs May, can I have my country back? R.I.P.

    All things being equal, I might go on Saturday. With camera of course. :)

    Looks great, I must try and get round to seeing it.

    Is it possible to get in without pre purchasing a ticket? Say if I went early on a Sunday or something? I don't generally book if I want to see something at the RA.

    vogonity Hmm...!

    It is fantastic: great spaces filled with extraordinary structures, topped off with a really informative film on the featured architects.

    any experiences on how busy it is would be welcome....
    I'd like to come but will wait until work takes me into London and then chance a last minute visit.
    also how long do you reckon is needed to wizz around all the bits?

    it annoys me that I can't leave my work bag (A3 thin case) into exhibition or at their left luggage.

    I wandered in today and got tickets on the spot. They let me take a pram and nappy bag in with me- they may be more strict at peak times I guess

    I got tickets on the spot, too. It should take about 45 minutes to get around. That said, it was a rainy Tuesday morning... peak times may be a touch more difficult.

    I didn't even have to queue for tickets and I went midday on a fairly sunny Saturday. We were probably there for an hour an a half, but we did lots of wandering round taking photos and sat and watched the whole film and then wandered some more.

    Went to see this this morning, got there at 10am when it opened and no problem getting in without booking.

    Really enjoyed it, went round once then went and watched the film which was very interesting and useful as the architects explaned their ideas behind the work which gave a good added insight. Then I went round again.

    Particularly liked the Japanese guy's bamboo and lights in the dark room and the Chinese guy's rooms built out of sticks.
