NOTES: Henrietta House is an office building designed by Christopher Haddon at Building Design Partnership. The sculptor Keir Smith was commissioned by the Public Art Development Trust to design a series of 15 Portland stone sculptures to create a 'frieze' tracing the architectural history of Britain at first floor level of the building's exterior. The project represented a major example of public sculpture commissioned and integrated into an architectural design at the earliest stage. Some of the drawings by Building Design Partnership have annotations made by Keir Smith relating to the sculpture. The project won the Royal Society of Arts Art for Architecture award in 1990.
