RIBA Regent St Windows by Squire and Partners
RIBA Regent St Windows is now in its 5th year and the talented creatives at Squire and Partners have this time teamed up with Brooks & Brothers. The architects have created an eye-catching architectural installation in one of the windows in London’s famed Regent Street. Squire and Partners were for this project inspired by the trademark of Brooks & Brothers – the iconic Golden Fleece. The architects have designed two crafted sculptures ensambled from 800 hand-made sheep suspended on golden threads. In addition the window steps out of the shop with a bronze statue of a sheep named Madison, already an attraction in its own right.
