SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
Construction for seduction

As part of its 175th Anniversary celebrations and to coincide with Valentine’s Day, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is holding a light-hearted poll to find the nation’s favourite building for a date. Fourteen buildings from across the UK have been selected for their emotive power and dating potential.

To vote for the building that you would most love to love in, go online at: www.architecture.com/constructionforseduction

The poll will run until 6 April, with interim Valentine’s Day results being released on Friday 13th February.

Selected buildings include the British Museum, Eden Project, Edinburgh Castle and the Brighton Pavilion.
