Chris Wilkinson designs courtyard installation for Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

The 244th annual Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts features a site specific architectural installation designed by architect and artist Chris Wilkinson RA, Director at WilkinsonEyre.

Positioned in the centre of the RA's Annenberg Courtyard at Burlington House, From Landscape to Portrait is a 12 metre-long sculpture based on a series of 11 wooden artist's frames, supported upon a timber structure clad in polished stainless steel. The sequential twist of the frames through 90 degrees from landscape (horizontal format) to portrait (vertical format), helps create a structure with a powerful sense of movement.
