Think H.R. Giger meets "World of Interiors", or the lovechild of the Natural History Museum and the V&A,(conceived in the Exhibition Road tunnel?). In the window are three slightly singed 3D printers, inside are biological specimens and biology-shaped architecture, furniture, 3D printed models, all curated to within an inch of their lives. The Architecture Foundation 136 Tooley Street SE1 2TU (020) 7084 6767 extended to April Another free exhibition, this at the British Library, called Beautiful Science, and about the graphic (and kinegraphic) display of information. Similarly, some quite beautiful graphics around heart electro-physiology are available online, just google the subject or similar, e.g."cardio electrics" "circle map" "Arnold tongue" (the last two are difficult maths but lovely patterns).
