Regent Street Window Project

This month, Regent Street's windows were treated to an architectural make-over for the third year running courtesy of The Royal Institute of British Architects. One of London's most populated shopping streets (neighbouring Oxford Street) turned into a massive exhibition as some of the most recognisable stores were expertly paired with designers to create installations that were just the right balance between brand and art.

Highlight's included Feix and Merlin's ribbons of neon light perfectly evoking the streamline and speedy for Ferrari. To off-set Banana Republic's safari themed collection, Ushida Findlay Architects and Visitor created a captured a beautiful 'moment in time' merging laser cut animals glazed in tinted Eco-resin. Co-Mute created an in-store installation from Bose taking inspiration from the iconic London tube train creating a completely immersive audio environment.

We can expect even more architectural inspiration next month as London plays host to the London Festival of Architecture.
