Free State of Soho

Free State of Soho


We hosted 11 RIBA students in our studio to work on their model on the Free State of Soho for the Regent Street window project.

Their brief  “With the possibility that current development will alter the uniquely contradictory character of Soho, DSDHA and the students of Unit 11 have declared a state of emergency. Together they propose a new Urban Constitution for an imagined ‘Free State of Soho’.”

Their finished model was shown in Banana Republic’s flagship store on Regent Street which we helped install (otherwise there may have been an actual state of emergency).
