This year’s Architecture Room in the Summer Exhibition is on the theme of The Unbuilt, a good way of encouraging architects not to use the exhibition as an advertisement for their new work, but to encourage them to show their more conceptual thinking. For example, I hadn’t seen David Chipperfield’s entry for the new set of cultural buildings in the Olympic Park, which he presented as a set of conceptual blocks made out of jesmonite:-
There’s a neo-1960s house on stilts designed by Richard Rogers:-
A wonderful crazy, but magnificent model by Will Alsop:-
And a big early painting by Zaha Hadid of the unbuilt Cardiff Opera House.
