NOTES: The former six-storey headquarters building was commissioned by the founder, William Randolph Hearst. Designed by Joseph Urban and completed in 1928, it was built as a base for a proposed skyscraper the construction of which was postponed due to the Great Depression. The skyscraper incorporating special environmental features was added in 2003-2006 by Foster & Partners.
NOTES: This design, titled 'Pericles' by an unidentified architect, features a small 'temple' structure (intended to house the RIBA president) surmounting a column-shaped tower which is shown emerging from behind the eroded facade of the RIBA's existing headquarters building (designed by George Grey Wornum in 1934). The design also features a water cascade, swimming pool and bandstand.
NOTES: This design (by 'Zara Thustra') proposes additional RIBA meeting rooms, library stores, architectural workships, exhibition and entertainment spaces housed within an airship-like balloon. The airship is shown both tethered to the RIBA's existing building at 66 Portland Place, London (designed by George Grey Wornum in 1934) and travelling above the City of London taking 'architecture to the people'.
NOTES: Leon Krier, architect and urban planner, was responsible for the masterplan that was developed in 1989-1993. The masterplan divides the town of Poundbury into four distinctive quarters, each quarter representing a Phase. Construction of Phase 1 commenced in October 1993 and was completed in 2002.
