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 the sequence of architectural installations extends beyond Regent Street to include participation from Liberty on Great Marlborough Street and the RIBA offices headquarters on Portland Place.
These unique and eye-catching displays demonstrate the innovation and creativity of architects whilst highlighting the participating fashion brands as champions of good design. The installations both enhance the retail experience for the customer and increase footfall for the retailer.
This year the installations will be up for three weeks from 5-25 September 2016 and will coincide with both London Fashion Week (16-20 September), the London Design Festival (17-25 September) and a new commission by Giles Round on facades (21 September - 30 December) at the Architecture Gallery at RIBA. Regent Street will become a platform for creativity, where architects and designers will showcase and explain their work in a celebration of all things ‘designer’ over the three week period.
The project is run by the London Region of the Royal Institute of British Architects in partnership with the Regent Street Association and is sponsored by The Crown Estate.
