We love a bit of architecture. Apparently the small one wants to be an ‘artitect’ … his colouring-in skills are almost as good as his dad’s so it’s looking possible. The Sensing Spaces exhibition at the Royal Academy ends on 6th April so if you’re thinking about going I should get a move on because it’s well worth. It is especially worth a visit with the kiddies as it’s hands on and very relaxed unlike some exhibitions which can, even though children can enjoy and engage, feel a little stifled and restrictive. Obviously heading to this exhibition with an architect means that it can get a bit dull so if you have one, leave them at home, ha! Although he did have his uses in the straw room (sure it has a more RIBA appropriate name but to us it’s affectionately known as the straw room) as he made some cool items for the children to fashion and some fancy 3-d shapes. Shamefully I didn’t take the camera, only the iPhone. I always take my camera out but this one day I thought ‘nah, I won’t be able to take photos anyway’ Alas I was wrong! I may head back, perhaps for the secret yoga at the weekend. If anyone (I know!) fancies the yoga pipe up.
Did I like the exhibition… as with all these arty things I often think ‘really?’ but the children loved it, the husband loved it and I enjoyed the family experience.
