Installation

The RIBA Regent Street Windows Project pairs exceptional RIBA architects with Regent Street retailers to create architectural installations in store windows along London's historic shopping street. This year, 13 practices challenge the notion of display with imaginative, spellbinding designs.

The RIBA Regent Street Windows Project pairs exceptional RIBA architects with some of the most prestigious retailers to create captivating architectural installations in shop windows along London's historic shopping street. This year, 13 architecture practices are working with 13 retailers.Now in its sixth year, the RIBA Regent Street Windows Project pairs exceptional RIBA architects with flagship retailers to create engaging architectural installations in shop windows along London's original shopping street. 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 6th September. Run in partnership with the Regent Street Association, the exhibition will run for three weeks from Monday 7th September – Sunday 27th September, coinciding with both the London Design Festival and London Fashion Week.

The following retailers and architects are participating in this year’s project:

L’Occitane with Coppin Dockray Architects
Hotel Café Royal with Citizens Design Bureau
Karen Millen with HASSELL
Armani Exchange with Shiro Studio
Hamleys with Office S&M
Anthropologie with EPR Architects
Penhaligon’s with Space Group Architects
Crabtree and Evelyn with London Atelier
Hawes and Curtis with Nick Wood, How About Studio and Gillian Lambert, RIBA
