Forgotten Spaces

As usual, I've been massively busy and left going to see the "Forgotten Spaces" exhibition at Somerset House, 'till very late.  But if you have a chance, pop down and see it before it finishes before the end of the month! It is the result of a competition put on by the RIBA, asking people (professionals and public) to think of uses for neglected or forgotten spaces, through out  the capital.  Inspiring entries included a salmon run, a growing pharmacy, a place to fix your broken bits and pieces and homes for bees!  

All the entries displayed are of fantastic quality of presentation, and they are shown in Somerset Houses' very own forgotten spaces, coal holes and a weird crypt like area underneath the building (I've posted one of the headstones they incorporated into the wall).  It was a bit spooky as I was there just after dusk, so it felt like an adventure discovering it!  Cam Jarvis, a designer I had the pleasure of working with, was exhibited with her design partner, Chris Blaydes.  Well done guys!
