A celebration of architects is taking place at London's Royal Academy. Called Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined, seven architectural practices from six countries have been invited to create site-specific installations throughout the 18th century building.

It's an all-encompassing experience for visitors with labyrinths, viewing platforms, smells and light shows; not to mention an introduction to architects famous in their home land but not so well known outside.

These yellow columns by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza reference the classical architecture of the historic building.
