Seven architects will be installing their own creations at London’s Royal Academy of Arts in what is being described as a “multi-sensory architectural maze”.
Chosen by the facility’s curators Kate Goodwin and Drue Heinz, participants who have so far agreed to take part in “Sensing Space: Architecture Reimagined” include Alvaro Siza, Eduardo Souto de Moura, Pezo von Ellrichshausen and Kengo Kuma.
The idea of the project is to allow people to experience designs using all of their senses to let them gain a differing perspective on the exhibits on show.
“We’re doing something we never do, which is encourage visitors to touch,” said Goodwin.
The event is scheduled to start early next year.
