For the duration of Sensing Spaces, you won't recognise the Royal Academy. Okay, so the grand Palladian exterior on Piccadilly will look as impressive as ever, but inside, a team of seven architects are transforming the galleries of Burlington House beyond all recognition.

The big aim of Sensing Spaces is to change the way the city thinks about and engages with architecture. At the show's core is a series of space-changing installations – think bamboo pyramids that secrete incense, a disorientating maze of mirrors and a kaleidoscope-coloured tunnel that shifts shape as visitors interact with it.

Check out the video above for a taste of what's in store when the show opens next year, and check back soon for more images, exclusive video content and information on how you can get involved with one of the most exciting shows of 2014.
