‘Sensing Spaces’ at the Royal Academy

‘Sensing Spaces’ at the Royal Academy

How does the room you’re sitting in make you feel? What is it about the soaring roof of a railway station, the damp odour of a cellar, the feel of worn stone steps beneath your feet, the muffled echo of a cloister or the cosy familiarity of your lounge that elicits glee, misery, fear or contentment?



Seven architectural practices from six countries and four continents / 23,000 square feet / 72 days / One monumental exhibition.
