The Royal Academy of Arts has set a challenge for some of the most creative architectural minds in the business: change our perspective on architecture. Considering the human species' reluctance to change, this is no easy task, but from the 25th January, we will be able to see for ourselves if the are able to pull it off.
Sensing Spaces asks the fundamental questions about architecture, such as 'how does it make us feel?', 'how does it influence the way we live?', and 'what power does it hold over us?' To answer these questions, the main galleries will be transformed using structures, textures, scents, sounds, and colour.
Entrance to the exhibit is included in the price of admission, which is £15.50 for adults, £14.50 for seniors, £6 concessions, and free for under 12s. There will be numerous talks and workshops throughout the season, which runs until the 6th April. For example, there will be two family events in February, in which you will get to build your own architectural structures. There will also be a Secret Yoga class, 'Slow Architecture' tour around London, and discussions on how architecture is made a sensory experience through writing, poetry, and theatre.
