Zaha Hadid: There Should Be No End To Experimentation

Over the weekend I caught the end of The Serpentine Sackler Gallery’s exhibition of Architect Zaha Hadid’s paintings and drawings. All from the period before her first building was erected in 1993, the exhibition focuses on Hadid’s 2D output from the 1970s to the 1990s.


The (New) Design Museum Mini Post

A few photos from the all new Design Museum in Holland Park. Housed in the former Commonwealth Institute, a 1960s Grade II listed building that has stood vacant at the end of High St Kensington for as long as I can remember.


Expo Cycles Bédoin Ventoux

Tour de France yellow bike

On Sunday we went to visit Expo Cycles Bédoin Ventoux – the shonky (in the best sense of the word) private bicycle and cycling memorabilia collection of Lino Lazzerini, a man whose boyhood dream of being a professional cyclist transformed into a 50 year passion for all things velo, making him a well known and much liked figure in the area.
