Stunning architect and retailer collaborations unveiled for RIBA Regent Street Windows 2016

Some of Regent Street’s leading retailers, including Liberty, Armani Exchange and Kate Spade New York, have collaborated with the Royal Institute of British Architects’ emerging and established RIBA Chartered Architects to create a series of shop windows with an architectural twist.

Launched on 5 September, the annual series of installations will see visitors to the famous London shopping street 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 on Portland Place.

Partnering with the London Design Festival and London Fashion Week, the project will create a public architecture exhibition seen by more than one million people each week.

The participating architects will have their installations on display 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
Liberty with Architecture Social Club
Molton Brown with Knox Bhavan & Susie MacMurray
RIBA, 76 Portland Place with CAN + Nina Shen Poblete
Uniqlo with Projects Office

RIBA London region director Dian Small said: “The RIBA Regent Street Windows project has established itself as a showcase for some of London’s finest emerging architects. Each year the installations demonstrate the fluidity of contemporary architecture, with each pairing embracing innovative art and design practices. It’s a pleasure to see the participants collaborating with some of the world’s leading fashion and beauty brands and envisioning such striking displays on an alternative space and scale.”

The project is run in partnership with the Regent Street Association and is sponsored by The Crown Estate.
