Focus On: Proposed Crimea Memorial Church



Looking at a drawing from the RIBA’s collections, RIBA curator Charles Hind explains why William Burges’s design for a memorial church in Constantinople was never built.

This item is on display at the Empire Builders exhibition at the V&A until 15 June 2014, part of the RIBA’s Brits Season.
