DH Lawrence Pavilion exhibits documents relating to the writer
Nottinghamshire's "most outstanding buildings" from the past five decades are being celebrated in a touring exhibition of modern architecture.
The 50 buildings featured in the exhibition have been chosen by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Julian Owen is the Chair of RIBA East Midlands.
He said: "It provides an opportunity for the public to appreciate the impact contemporary architecture has made in each decade over the past 50 years."
The 'Fifty buildings 50 years' exhibition looks at "how architectural creativity is shaped by context, place, culture, social and political trends of the time and, in turn, shapes the identity of local places and spaces".
Nottinghamshire architect Hannah Minton, who chaired the group who shortlisted for the show, said choosing 50 exemplary buildings from 50 years was "an incredibly challenging project".

It has toured the East Midlands over the last six month but returns to city for a second showing, this time at Nottingham Trent University's Newton Building on Goldsmith Street from 31 January to 11 February 2011.
