Since January, the Royal Academy of Arts has been playing host to 6 large scale structures created by architects from across the globe. Entitled ‘Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined’, the exhibition invites visitors to consider some of the big questions about the nature of architecture. How do spaces make us feel? What does architecture do for our lives?

With the exhibition ending on Sunday, we highly recommend a last minute weekend trip with the whole family. From exploring Pezo von Ellrichshausen’s spiral staircase, to negotiating Li Xiaodong’s bamboo maze, and actually collaborating on Diébédo Francis Kéré’s multicoloured straw covered tunnel, each structure is a wonderfully interactive experience.

For older children, don’t miss the short film that plays throughout the day. Hearing each architect speak about their practice and the concepts behind the work they’ve created for the RA, won’t fail to spark imaginations and might just inspire our next generation of architecture students.

While you’re in the area, don’t forget to pop into our Fenwick concession on Bond Street or visit us at the superb kids department in Selfridges.
