Wettbewerbsaufgabe / Competition Task
A highly anticipated project on the architecture and design calendar, RIBA Regent Street Windows returns for its eight year, but this time with the added excitement of the opportunity being open to all RIBA Chartered Practices and Members nationally and internationally.
The RIBA Regent Street Windows Project pairs exceptional RIBA architects with Regent Street retailers to create captivating architectural installations in store windows along and around London’s historic shopping street.
Delivered in partnership with the Crown Estate, the internationally renowned project has grown in strength year-on-year. The programme timing has changed from previous years and this time will see the installations on display from Monday 23 April for a period of between three to four weeks.
This is a unique opportunity for RIBA Chartered Practices and Members to demonstrate the innovative ways in which they work while allowing for a direct interaction with London’s public and visitors on its most iconic retail destination, attracting a footfall of over 1.2million people per week.
