TINY HOUSE DESIGN
This blog makes us happy. Genuinely, smile-on-face-happy. It’s a collection of minute architectural gems brought together under the heading of ‘less is more sustainable & attainable’, and as you browse through these homes, you’ll instantly become a convert.
Some of them are just so cute in their smallness, but they never make you cringe like ‘Little Waitrose’ or baby vegetables. It’s probably one of the only times you’ll catch yourself wishing you lived in something which should probably be classed as a caravan.

VAULT FESTIVAL, 'TIL 8th MARCH
We’ve all heard that statistic that there’s 87 000 miles or whatever or tunnels beneath London. Heck, De Beauvoir’s Mole Man manages to fit 12 miles under one house! Anyhow, until the 9th of March, the Vaults near Waterloo station have a programme of events as diverse as London’s subterranean world has ever seen.
There’s theatre, live music, club nights (our favourite Artful Badger from the festival circuit) and comedy alongside a few late night lock-ins.
TO LEAVE A LIGHT IMPRESSION
This exhibition of new work by Darren Almond is in fact two series of photographs, Fullmoon and Present Form, alongside a group of small-scale bronze sculptures. The whole lot sit together as a beautiful, ethereal collection, but it’s the photographs of disparate landscapes taken over a period of 13 years across every continent which are the showstoppers.
They’re classic and futuristic, savage and a bit terrifying. Moreover, they find our need to capture the passing of time and how the earth does it for us.

MARTIN CREED, JAN 29 - APR 27
Perhaps best known for the controversy his works create about the question of contemporary art, such as the piece of Blu-tack or his Turner Prize win Work No. 227: the lights going on and off, Martin Creed is known for his minimalist, witty approach. In the first retrospective of his 25 year career, the Hayward Gallery brings together both rarely seen early works and some of his latest sculptural commissions.
As part of the Pull Out All of the Stops Festival, the Southbank Centre has commissioned Creed to a new work celebrating the restoration of the Festival Hall organ – don’t miss the series of performances scheduled to show off the new organ.
