Linear House, Highgate, North London and Chehel Sotoun in Isfahan, Iran.
Open House is London's largest architectural showcase. For one weekend in the year, 700 buildings of every conceivable type, shape and size open their doors to Londoners. This year we went to two places: a modern private house and a yurt!
Linear House is a modern house built on a sloping site. The building takes its reference from the classical architecture in its symmetry and proportion.
Medals are best known for celebrating important figures or heroic deeds, but Medals of Dishonour exhibition at British Museum features medals that condemn their subjects. The display exposes the long and rich tradition of this darker side of medals. The exhibition is on untill the 27th September 2009.
