Fashion, architecture and culture will collide next spring, when RIBA architects return to Shanghai to showcase their talents during Shanghai Fashion Week (April 2014) for the RIBA Shanghai Windows Project.
Now in its second year in China, the RIBA Windows Project matches RIBA architects with international fashion brands to create innovative and thought provoking architectural installations, demonstrating that architects can work at any scale, from something as small as a window installation to something as large as a building.
RIBA London is working with Chinese Developer, Shui On Land, who manage the landmark Shanghai Xintiandi shopping complex, to secure up to 10 retail locations to house up to 10 architectural interventions.
RIBA London is now inviting RIBA architects to apply to participate in the project. The project covers return flights and accommodation on two RIBA organised trips to Shanghai. This year, the offer has been extended to Chartered RIBA members across the UK and in Hong Kong and China.
The lucky architects will get a unique opportunity to showcase their skills to a wide audience. With a daily footfall of 50,000 - 60,000 in the Shanghai Xintiandi malls, and wide media coverage, this is an exciting opportunity to gain brand exposure.
The RIBA Windows project started on London’s Regent Street and has been developed in China with the support of the British Council and Shui On Land.
