In a recent article for the Financial Time, Edwin Heathcote reflects on the latest exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The exhibition titled: 1:1 Architect Build Small Spaces is a unique installation exhibition of impermanent houses in the museum.
The exhibition takes relatively unknown architects in the UK, none of which having built in the UK before, and gives them a space in the museum to create a structure in the museum without detracting from their context.
Heathcote felt the most wonderful and most odd of the structure is Terunobu Fujimori's "Beetle's House" for its unique shape and location within the gallery. He goes on the describe various other creations for the exhibition and his admiration for the "intriguing collision of architecture, art, design, and display.
The exhibition began June 15, and will continue through August 30.
