Recently SRA Architects, Emily Giles, Claire Miller and Andrew Brooks submitted an Expression of Interest to participate in the highly anticipated RIBA Regent Street Windows Project 2018 competition. An exciting opportunity that pairs exceptional RIBA architects with Regent Street retailers to create captivating architectural installations in store windows along and around London’s historic shopping asset.
As part of their submission the team included a photograph of their inspiration images. We asked if they would mind sharing them and giving us a glimpse of why these images spark their creativity when thinking about new project designs.
What inspires us?
Andrew Brooks with an image of ‘The Man Who Flew into Space from His Apartment’ by Ilya Kabakov.
Emily Giles with an image of the ‘Bombay Sapphire Distiller’ from the Heatherwick Studio.
Claire Miller with an image called ‘Blood’ by Gilbert & George with Jean Abreu Dance.
How does this work in practice?
To give a glimpse of how our ‘creative spark’ works in practice take the Installation we did at 101 Milton Park Reception:
