Installations and works in various media by leading architects and urban designers.
In a show unlike anything the Royal Academy has staged before, industry leaders hailing from China to Chile, Burkina Faso to Berlin, were challenged to find ‘a new perspective’ on architecture.
The resulting display is a kaleidoscopic mix of textures, scents, lighting and colour that raises fundamental questions about the nature of building design and how it affects our lives. These site specific installations are set within the Academy's Grade II* listed galleries, encouraging visitors to reflect similarly on the architectural history of Burlington House.
Participants include Kengo Kuma, the mastermind behind the upcoming V&A Dundee and Álvaro Siza, a former winner of the Pritzker Prize.
