Radical Rooms: Power of the Plan

Radical Rooms: Power of the Plan is the RIBA's latest exhibition, created through a special partnership between architect Charles Holland and visual artist Di Mainstone.

Spanning nearly 500 years, the exhibition is anchored in three domestic buildings from the 16th, 18th, and 20th centuries: Hardwick Hall, A la Ronde and the Hopkins House. Each shows the profound role of women in their development and design, an influence that has persistently been left out of the history of architecture.

Drawing on an alternative history of protagonists Bess of Hardwick, Jane and Mary Parminter and Patty Hopkins, Radical Rooms explores the power relations embedded within the layout of our domestic spaces, using stories from architectural history to highlight moments when the plan has challenged the conventions of domestic life.
