The RA is bringing together some of architecture’s most visionary minds around the globe for one challenging objective: Give a new perspective on architecture. With their various architectural and cultural backgrounds, they will each transform the RA’s Main Galleries and pose fundamental questions regarding the nature of architecture.
“Sensing Spaces” will feature a notable group of architects: Grafton Architects, Diébédo Francis Kéré, Kengo Kuma, Pezo von Ellrichshausen, two Pritzker Prize laureates Eduardo Souto de Moura and Álvaro Siza, and Li Xiaodong, whose Liyuan Library ShowCase feature went viral on Archinect last October.
The exhibit is organized by the Royal Academy of Arts and curated by Kate Goodwin, the RA’s architectural curator. “Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined” will be open to the public starting Jan. 25, 2014 until April 6, 2014.
