Now in its sixth year, the RIBA Regent Street Windows Project pairs exceptional RIBA architects with flagship retailers to create engaging architectural installations in their shop windows. Fashion retailers, skincare boutiques, perfumeries, restaurants and cafes have given over their display to bring architecture into their stores and reach new audiences with these crafted interventions. The project creates a huge public architecture exhibition seen by more than one million people each week.
From fabric forests to kaleidoscopic reflections; lenticular walls to flocks of tailored cloth, this year’s installations bend the very notion of display and have challenged architects to work with retailers to interrogate their brands, their history and their windows to produce an architectural installation that captures the imagination of passers-by and customers alike.
This year’s windows will be installed overnight on Sunday 6 September. The exhibition will run for three weeks from Monday 7 to Sunday 27 September, coinciding with both the London Design Festival and London Fashion Week. For more information, download the press release or contact Howard Crosskey.
