We're very excited to help take the concept to Shanghai with the RIBA as part of our work for UK Now. The project is a means to encourage young people to engage with architecture and fashion, while bringing to life retail spaces and promoting an exploration of spatial issues.
This is outdoor exhibition free and open to any one walking down Regent Street, and will be running 16 April to 6 May.
A one-hour walking tour of the completed installations, led by an RIBA member of staff, will take place on the following days:
- Sunday 22 April, 2pm
- Thursday 26 April, 1pm
- Wednesday 2 May, 6pm
