See Sensing Spaces at the Royal Academy

Always first with a story, your author took the time to pop into Sensing Spaces at the Royal Academy yesterday, an exhibition which has been running since January, and comes to an end this Sunday, 6th April. For anyone else who has not yet found the time to see it, the exhibition involves the Academy working with seven different architectural practices to design their own spaces across 23,000 square feet of gallery space, which visitors place themselves within and occasionally interact with. The exit is then through a film room, where the thoughts behind the spaces are explained, giving an opportunity to check you have understood the exhibition 'properly'.

The architects involved have done a fine job, creating spaces within the relatively small galleries which evoke a sense of somewhere else, or make you feel small, or allow you to see the gaudy ceilings of the Academy in a different way, or let you claim some ownership of an exhibit using colourful straws. Whilst you have only three remaining days to visit, you will be rewarded for your effort.
