Design for the roving Land Traveller Exhibition, part of the Festival of Britain: sketch for the interior of the train's pullman car

RIBA31218
Levin, Richard (1910-2000)
NOTES: Designed as the Festival of Britain's travelling exhibition, 'The Land' visited Leeds, Birmingham and Nottingham between May and October 1951. The exhibition's themes were similar to those of the main site in London but with greater emphasis placed on industrial design.

Unexecuted design for an iron railway bridge over the River Avon, Clifton, Bristol: perspective view

RIBA31383

RIBA31512
Stephenson, Robert (1803-1859)
NOTES: This tubular bridge of wrought iron rectangular box-section carrying rail traffic spanned the Menai Strait between the Island of Anglesey and the mainland Wales at Bangor. Damaged by fire in 1970, it was rebuilt as a two-tier steel truss arch bridge, carrying both road and rail traffic.

Unexecuted design for Finchley Central London Underground Station, London: aerial perspective view

RIBA32871
Adams Holden & Pearson
NOTES: Charles Holden and Reginald Uren designed replacement buildings (1937-1939) for the existing station, but the project was abandoned with the outbreak of the war and, although raised again in 1947, was never executed. Number 8 is a Uren design; the stripped-classicism of the tall pillars arranged in a curve at the station entrances, is more heroic than the buildings designed in the same style by Holden.

Unexecuted design for a new town, Isola Dino, Calabria: aerial perspective showing 'floating' villa blocks, a monorail and marina

RIBA32968
Auger, Boyd (1930-1998)
