Architecture reimagined.

The Royal Academy’s first exhibit of the year, ‘Sensing Spaces’ is an inspiring and intriguing exhibition that challenges our perception about the spaces we live in. Some of the greatest architects of the 21st century have created stunning exhibits that take up a gallery or two.

From the Second Row of images- Installations by Pezo von Ellrichshausen, Diébédo Francis Kéré,Li Xiaodong, Grafton Architects and Kengo Kuma.

It was my first time to the RA, finally made the 15 minute bus trip!

My favourite had to be the bright, vibrant installation by Diébédo Francis Kéré. Made out of polypropylene honeycomb, viewers are invited to add their own choice of colourful plastic straws to the structure. The natural light from the ceiling (and the gallery turned playground) gave a fun outdoor feel to the room. There were a couple of poolside-like chairs inside the installation, where one could sit back and enjoy the view.

Diébédo Francis Kéré has an inspiring story himself, did a bit of googling and here’s him speaking at a TED talk.

Enjoy!
