The Royal Institute of British Architects has revealed designs for 15 retail installations that will be on show in London’s Regent Street in September 2014, as part of the RIBA Regent Street Windows Project and the London Design Festival.
The scheme, which has been running for five years, pairs RIBA architects with flagship retailers on and around Regent Street to create a massive public architecture exhibition seen by more than a million people every week.
“Architects are experts at using space creatively and imaginatively – from huge buildings to the smallest of home extensions,” says RIBA London Region director Tamsie Thomson. “Regent Street sees huge footfall with over one million people each week. We’re delighted to be giving such exposure to some of London’s most respected and imaginative architects, while adding a new cultural element to the shopping experience.”
The displays will be installed overnight on Sunday 31st August and remain for three weeks. They will include Squire and Partners’ design for Brooks Brothers, drawing on its historical brand reference to the Golden Fleece; Mobile Studio's design for fashion brand Jack Spade and a window for jewellery brand Folli Follie by Denizen Works (all pictured).
