Have you popped down to Regent Street recently? Well if you can handle the crowds you should, as this year’s RIBA Window Project is currently in place.
The project includes six architecture studios working with shops along the famous road, creating unique displays in six of the most iconic stores.
Supported by RIBA and the Regent Street Association, the project is in its fourth year and runs until 6th May 2013.
Topshop has a rotating wheel of mannequins designed by George King and Mark Nixon from Neon, which will allow for different outfits to be displayed throughout the day.
The installation at Karen Millen is made of sports fabric and cable ties, and spans the 30-metre length of the window. It is the creation of Mamou-Mani.
John Tollitt and his team at Gensler drew on the emotional response one may feel driving one of their cars for their display for the flagship store of Ferrari.
The atrium of Espirit‘s store was transformed by naganJohnson into a beach scene, complete with a wave of chestnut paling fencing.
Carl Turner Architects referenced American artist Gordon Matta Clark‘s images of cut-out buildings at Jack Spade‘s Brewer Street store, just off Regent Street, creating fantasy New York streetscapes on the facade, in the windows and on blackboard illustrations.
Finally, interlocking panels to form freestanding screens at Moss Bros, creating a three-dimensional herringbone effect was the idea of AY Architects.
