  • 5 SEP 2016 - ARMANI EXCHANGE/REGENT STREET WINDOWS

    MW has partnered with Armani Exchange for the 2016 RIBA Regent Street Windows Project.

    An ongoing fascination with the artists of the Light and Space movement in Southern California during the 1960s has led to an installation along in the Grade II listed department store block designed by Sir Henry Tanner (1921-2).

    The work operates at an architectural scale, saturating the display window with the strong physical experience of a single colour, while maintaining transparency both into the store and outwards to the street. The specific hue forms a complement to the AW16 collection, while suggesting broader conceptual relations to climate and weather.

    The RIBA Regent Street Windows Project matches architects with some of London’s most prestigious retailers to create architectural installations in shop windows along and around London’s Regent Street, W1. This year the installations will be up for three weeks from 5-25 September 2016 and will coincide with both London Fashion Week (16-20 September) and the London Design Festival (17-25 September). 

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