Venues including Green Park, Duke of York Square, Carnaby Street, High Street Kensington, Big Ben, Borough Market and one of London Aquarium's shark tanks host this display of replica telephone boxes. Taking inspiration from the iconic 'K6' kiosk, which was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate the silver jubilee of George V in 1935, British and international artists, architects and designers have been asked by BT to transform full-size replicas in their own creative way. Those involved include Zaha Hadid, David Mach, Stephen Cox, Zandra Rhodes, Philip Treacy, Giles Deacon and Julien Macdonald. The boxes are being gathered together for a launch in Trafalgar Square on June 15 before being dispersed around the capital for display between June 18 and July 16. A number are also being previewed in the windows and in-store at Harvey Nichols (May 24-June 11). After the display, some of the boxes will be auctioned in aid of ChildLine, while others will be up for grabs via online public auction.
