London, UK

Client: RSA

The RSA is an historic society and an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. Through its ideas, research and 27,000-strong world-wide Fellowship it seeks to understand and enhance human capability so we can close the gap between today’s reality and people’s hopes for a better world.

The RSA has undertaken a major redevelopment of their Grade 1 listed building on the Strand in central London. Vanguardia has provided full design for Audiovisual and Interactive systems. This has included bespoke and innovative solutions to audio, video and touch interface design. The installed system will provide a wide degree of flexibility allowing the facilities to be used in numerous configurations for many different types of events. The Great Room, Benjamin Franklin Room and other areas also include innovative architecturally integrated acoustic treatment solutions. Vanguardia has also provided UX design and content management that utilises existing content and integrates with the ongoing management of events and communications across the globe from this Historic centre of the RSA's activities.
