Regent's Park, London
Royal College of Physicians, St Andrews Place, Regents Park NW4. Designed by Denys Lasdun and Partners. Built 1960–64. Listed grade I
Built to a substantial budget, the RCP cemented Denys Lasdun’s reputation as one of the foremost architects of the time. Designed to provide both ceremonial and day-to-day functions, the building also had to fit within the surrounding John Nash Regency terraces. This was managed by the interplay of forms and the contrasting use of white mosaic, echoing Nash’s stucco, and the dark blue brick.
