The Royal Albert Hall is one of the most recognisable opera halls in the world. So to have the opportunity to draw the famous building, as well as the surrounding ‘Albertopolis’ area was not only a privilege but an interesting journey of architectural discovery.
The final design includes notable landmarks from Exhibition Road, such as the Natural History, V&A and Science museums. Of course, the hall itself is situated at the centre of the design. Furthermore, other more hidden landmarks such as Queen’s Tower and the Royal College of Organists were included.
A fun feature was the inclusion of the Crystal Palace, which, although destroyed by a fire in the mid-1800s, made for a beautiful addition to the design.
