Real Studios will soon be luring the public to Walthamstow Wetlands' new visitor centre, with displays that layer information and activities around a lively central café in the refurbished Victorian Triple Engine House. It opens summer 2017.
    
Currently one of Thames Water's best-kept secrets, Real Studios' scheme is designed to encourage exploration of the vast reservoir landscape, with AV's revealing the workings and history of the site, its flora and fauna. A key feature of the design, an iconic installation, will be suspended over the ground floor café: 150 glass bottles, their contents gathered and displayed through engagement with local community groups and schools. 
    
We are working alongside WWM architects and KLA landscape designers.

For the Royal Academy's new blockbuster, Revolution (now open), Real Studios has deployed a revolutionary sensibility using graphics, structures and colours inspired by Russian design of the period. This acts as a frame to the extraordinary (and sometimes controversial) art works of the period.
   
Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 charts the period when artists and designers looked to reinvent what and indeed who their art was for. Real Studios' bold design takes visitors on a dynamic journey through the mixed media content, harnessing the dynamism of the period's flourishing visual language, with a 'Russian' sense of colour, large graphic propaganda and dynamic structural interventions.

'The brief but soaring flight of the Russian Avant Garde falls to earth in a silt of Stalinist kitsch, and what follows is condensed in the intensely moving Room of Memory.'
The Guardian  - 12th Feb

  
'The dizzying idealism reaches its height in one of the exhibition's most striking rooms where, bird-like, a wood and canvas flying machine is suspended from a vaulting rotunda ceiling.'
