In 1812, John Soane wrote ‘Crude Hints towards a History of my House,’ a strange text in which he imagined his home as a ruin centuries into the future. Soane suggested that the visitors to the museum have been inhabited by four characters; a Lawyer, a Monk, a Magician and an Architect. Fast-forward two hundred years and these characters have been brought to life by MUTT as unique architectural compositions. Marrying ornament, rich colour palettes and shape, these 3D forms will breathe a playful new life into a space which has remained untouched since its creator died 180 years ago.

Address: Sir John Soane’s Museum, 13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3BP

Located at Trafalgar Square, this exhibition is the result of a collaboration between designer ES Devlin and Google Arts and Culture, who worked together for one year to achieve this result. Visitors are invited to ‘feed’ words to the lion, which will appear as LED lights in its mouth by day and light up Nelson’s column at night. The new big cat will be joining the four original lions, which have remained in pride of place in the square since 1867 and each way around 7,000 kilograms.

Address: Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 5NJ
