The Endless Loom – Play Your Style

The RIBA, the British Council and Chinese property developer Shui On Land invited a group of UK architects to transform a selection of shop windows in Shanghai’s entertainment and retail district Xintiandi. The installations were part of UK Now and a continuation of the RIBA’s Regent Street Shopwindows event.
