Words by Chloe Pelas

Disappear Here
Until 7 October
RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London

This sees Sam Jacob Studio redesign 66 Portland’s Architecture Gallery into a space of abstraction and illusion, exploring how perspective has been used for centuries to translate the 3D on a 2D plane. Most notably the exhibition investigates how it has been used as a tool to both see and create spaces, in a bid to make sense of the vast, complex world.
