Charles Holden: Underground Journeys

The V&A and RIBA have created an online exhibition of drawings of the work of Charles Holden from the RIBA drawings collection, based on the exhibition that took place at the Architecture Gallery of the V&A from October 2010 to February 2011. Holden's designs for London Underground stations in the 1920's and 30's were an integral part of the visual identity of the organisation that developed at the time, along with the iconic tube map, posters and Johnston's fonts. The online exhibition includes numerous perspective images by Holden and others.

The exhibition is on the RIBA website. A downloadable PDF brochure is also available.
