I've discovered a fresh bit of amazing London architecture: the Royal College of Physicians building next to Regent's Park.

I was there Friday afternoon and Saturday morning for a legal event (Chancery Bar Association winter conference) and was immediately impressed by the building. Its style seemed familiar and I wasn't at all surprised to find that it was by Denys Lasdun, architect of the Royal National Theatre and Keeling House (the latter being familiar to me via [livejournal.com profile] purplecthulhu).

Even more interestingly the RCP was about to open its exhibition on John Dee, so I was able to get a sneak peek.

I'll definitely be going back soon, both to see the full Dee exhibition and to further admire Lasdun's architecture.
