The RIBA Regent Street Windows Project has launched today (Monday 5 September 2016), returning for its seventh year. The project brings together leading retailers along Regent Street and RIBA chartered architects, who join forces to create architectural window displays.
This year’s windows reflect the versatility and ingenuity of the architects in creating new and fresh designs that build on the history and vision of each brand. Visitors will be treated to displays which play on movement and materials; colour and texture; and heritage and story-telling. For the first time, the sequence of architectural installations extends beyond Regent Street to include participation from Liberty on Great Marlborough Street and the RIBA offices headquarters at 76 Portland Place.
The participating architects will have their installations on display from Monday 5 September for a three week period until Sunday 25 September. The architects and retailers paired this year are:
7 For All Mankind with KSR Architects
Armani Exchange with Matheson Whiteley
Charles Tyrwhitt with Bureau de Change
Kate Spade New York with Design Haus Liberty
Kiehl's with Piercy & Company x Electrolight
KIKO MILANO with Aleksa Studio

RIBA installation at 76 Portland Place with CAN + Nina Shen Poblete
