New mini-exhibition of Heath Robinson-inspired architectural designs by Harrow College students

Lecturers and staff from Harrow College were at the museum today to install an exciting new architectural design exhibition in the activity Studio. These 3-dimensional models were designed and made by students towards their UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Architecture, Interior and Product Design.

Inspired by Heath Robinson’s farcical illustrations of how to make the most of small spaces for the “How to live in a flat” book, the students produced designs for a small living space no larger a shipping container (just 15 square metres). These designs also had to be influenced by a 20th C architectural movement of their choice. Every requirement for a modern habitat had to be fitted into this tiny space, which required some tough choices, clever planning and design.

Admission to the mini-exhibition is included with your museum ticket.
