LDF 2012.

The London Design Festival is celebrating its 10th birthday this September by holding nearly as many events as this summer’s Olympic games. Thankfully, there’s a smartphone app to help you navigate the mass of city-wide shows and ‘interventions’. We’re particularly looking forward to exploring the V&A to find the ten ghost-like Mimicry chair installations and the BE OPEN Sound Portal in Trafalgar Square. MDKtm

Smashing.

It’s not unusual to see abandoned buildings with smashed windows in run down parts of a city. But it is unusual to see every window – all 312 of them – cracked and smashed in exactly the same way. This warehouse in Hackney, London is just a – erm – stone’s throw away from the Olympic Stadium and has been reborn as an art piece by Alex Chinneck. He painstakingly replaced all the windows with 1,248 identically broken pieces of glass, brilliantly regenerating the forgotten building by – ironically – destroying it even further. Sadly, the destruction becomes final in November when the warehouse is due for demolition. MDKtm

Telling the Truth Through False Teeth by Alex Chinneck is on the corner of Mare Street and Tudor Road in Hackney, London E9 7SN. Until November 2012. See alexchinneck.com
