sensing spaces

the royal academy of arts challenged seven architects from six countries to awaken the sensibilities of the galleries space around them, sensing spaces. to use the space of the gallery to explore the experimental qualities that are found within architecture. in galleries where the norm is for artwork to hang from the walls, to challenge the galleries to a different experience of space, proportion and light. architecture reimagined.

the seven architects are :

– yvonne farrell and shelley mcnamara of grafton architects
– diébédo francis kéré
– kengo kuma
– li xiaodong
– pezo von ellrichshausen
– alvaro siza
– eduardo souto de moura

    I always find it pretty amazing how you can give so many people a subject, and they all come up with something completely different. Fascinating how the mind works!
