This June sees the return of London Festival of Architecture. To celebrate, the Soane is launching a programme of pop-up exhibitions and events centred around LFA 2019's theme of Boundaries.

Proposal B, installed at Venice Biennale 2018

Proposal B

30 May to 16 June

Are Museums places where we just look at objects, or social spaces to participate and interact? Originally launched for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, Proposal B is a pop-up exhibition by design duo Peter Salter and Fenella Collingridge that blurs the distinctions between furniture, art and architecture. Installed in the Museum's Foyle Space, Proposal B provides spaces for visitors to sit and moving parts to manipulate, creating a platform for conversation and interaction.

Meet the artists at our after-hours talk
