    Thanks for that - Interesting to know. I've been to the exhibition it's just fantastic - Would definitely recommend going if you haven't already? It's running until October. I reckon a big favorite of mine was Zaha Hadid's and Nigel Coates work - have a new found respect for architecture, however, the best thing is leaving my kids at the workshop where I was then allowed to enjoy the exhibition in peace :) In fact there is a free giveaway tickets - Hope you enjoy it as much as i did
