Now in its fifth year, the RIBA Regent Street Windows Project matches cutting-edge RIBA architects with some of London’s most prestigious retailers to create stunning architectural installations in shop windows along and around London’s Regent Street, W1.
This year fifteen architecture practices will work with fifteen retailers to create a sequence of stunning architectural installations on Regent Street, Heddon Street and Brewer Street.
These unique and eye-catching displays demonstrate the innovation and creativity of architects while demonstrating the retailers' commitment to quality design. The installations both enhance the retail experience for the customer and increase footfall for the retailer. The architects meanwhile get a unique opportunity to demonstrate their flair and creativity to a new audience.
This year the installations will be up for three weeks from 1-21 September 2014 and will coincide with both London Fashion Week (12-16 September) and the London Design Festival (13-21 September).
Regent Street will become a platform for design, where architects, designers and fashion designers will showcase and explain their work in a celebration of all things ‘designer’ related over the three week period.
Participating retailers and architects in 2014 include:
Banana Republic with Make Architects
Topshop with atmos

Karen Millen with EKM Works
