Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

This book tells the complete story of the great Leipzig Glass Hall, designed by Ian Ritchie Architects. Erected in 1996, it is the largest glass palace in the world. This beautifully produced and printed book - designed by Ian Ritchie- examines the historical background of the project and reveals the fascinating story of the design's evolution.
From the steel structure to the detail of the vertically sliding escape doors and the cleaning robots, all aspects of the design work are explored. New photography shows the building to dramatic effect and in a fold-out section the original construction drawings are illustrated to give the reader an understanding of this remarkable glass building
