Cedric Price: Doubt, Delight and Change at the Design Museum

Abigail Banks

If you absolutely go nuts over technical drawings, building models, and blueprint layouts then head on over to the Design Museum for the exhibition of Cedric Price's work.

Price claimed that his work was defined by "doubt, delight and change". This exhibition represents this theme by focusing on only eight particular projects that fall into those categories.

He is known mainly for his extremely radical ideas and visions. However most of these visions were never completed or brought into existence. One design that never made it to creation was a tower of globe-shaped cabins called The Thing in which people could ride and see the expanse of London's beautiful cityscape. This was perhaps the precursor to the London Eye. This exhibition is focussed on Price's genius ideas, how they worked, and what they were designed to do for the imagination of both London and the world.

• Until 9 October at the Design Museum
