Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined
Get involved with one of the most exciting shows of 2014.
For their first major exhibition of the year, the Royal Academy has opened its doors to seven architects to redesign the interior of its main galleries.
The idea is to change the way the city thinks about and engages with architecture, encouraging you to touch, reflect, interact and explore. Throughout the exhibition we are challenged to consider ‘How spaces make us feel?’ and the possibilities of architecture in our lives?
Each room is completely different to the ones either side of it, exhibiting the power of design. The Diebedo Francis Kere installation encourages interaction by providing coloured straws to insert into a honeycomb structure. The work that will continue to evolve throughout the exhibition, creating a new facade as you make your own personal mark.
Whereas Kengo Kuma uses a delicate bamboo structure which appears to weave and reach for the ceiling. The scent infused bamboo is soothing and this installation will encourage visitors to close their eyes and drift into a meditative state.
Everyone’s response is valid in this exhibition, combined with the contrasting styles of the architects make it an amazing experience.
Tickets are £14 for adults, concessions available.
