      Did the V & A have an Architecture exhibit on display?

      the V&A did have an architecture exhibit...on the 4th floor. Part of their perminent collection as well as a special section on housing.

      Piranesi drew sections of it. There's a Taschen book of his complete engravings which has it in there, I think.

      ...actually, it's a plaster cast in the V&A so they may not have bothered with the interior spaces, but the real Trajan's Column has a staircase.
