The Royal Academy of Arts has opened its doors for an architectural exhibition called Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined in London. The exhibition was inspired by the craft of wooden structures. Architects from all around the world have flocked to the exhibition to show off their art installations. The architects include Kengo Kuma, Álvaro Siza and Eduardo Souto de Moura have taken over the London gallery space with installations that consist of wooden stick structures, scented bamboo installations and timber-constructed monuments.
The Sensing Spaces exhibit features installations that are designed to induce thought amongst its visitors and guests of the gallery; and to discover and explore the essential elements and relationship of architecture and space. According to the curator Kate Goodwin on the idea behind the exhibit, “unlike almost any other art form, architecture is part of our everyday life, but its ability to dramatically affect the way we think, feel and interact with one another is often overlooked.”
