Royal Academy Burlington Launch

250 years of the RA reimagined

The Royal Academy is launching a new development linking for the first time their two existing sites in Mayfair. To reveal the plan, Squint/Opera produced this short film using a blend of motion graphics, historic and contemporary archive footage. The film tells the story of the Royal Academy's illustrious 250 year history and the continuation of its important role as an independent charitable organisation.

Alongside footage of the current site, Our 3D visualisations help to explain how the new space will be used; bringing to life Sir David Chipperfield's £50 million design which will be completed in 2018 for the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy.
