RIBA uses ThistlePro Magnetic plaster to showcase UK's best architecture 

Date: 23 February 2016

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has used British Gypsum’s innovative ThistlePro Magnetic plaster in a recent refurbishment of the President’s office at its prestigious Grade II* listed London headquarters.

Jane Duncan, President of the RIBA, wanted to use her office space to display design development sketches and models created by students to showcase the future of architecture.

As this vision calls for frequent changes to exhibits, a flexible solution was required, without the use of pins or adhesive substances, to eliminate damage and the need for regular redecoration of the room.

Head of Projects and Building Strategy and in-house Architect at the RIBA, Martin Pascoe, choose to specify British Gypsum’s ThistlePro Magnetic plaster on the display wall to meet these specific flexibility requirements, enhance the experience of the room and ensure the space remains aesthetically appealing.
