Book Signing | Tamar Zinguer signs copies of her book Architecture in Play: Intimations of Modernism in Architectural Toys
Created for children but designed by adults with considerable ingenuity and often pedagogical intentions, architectural toys have long offered a window on a much larger world. Zinguer explores the two-hundred-year period over which such playthings have reflected changing attitudes toward form, structure, and permanence, echoing modernist experiments and stylistic inclinations in fascinating ways while also incorporating technological advances in their systems of construction.

Theater | Rabbit Hole: A College Production
Written by: Duncan Macmillan. Directed by: Zenon Kruszelnicki. "Darryl is 15 and already broken. His mum killed herself, his school has excluded him from lessons, an Asbo hangs over him, and he has a worrying obsession with his nan's kitchen knife and Charles Manson. But trainee teacher Tom, escaping a City job and a mental breakdown, wants to make a difference. His pregnant wife, Jodi, doubts that Darryl can be repaired, but Tom is determined to patch the boy up. He can't change the history, but maybe he can make a better future, particularly if he can enlist the help of Rita, who says she wants the best for her grandson. In the process, Tom might make a better future for his own unborn child, his own "little monster"." - The Guardian
