Sleaford’s National Centre for Craft and Design main gallery will become a haven for architecture fans with its new exhibition.

It is an extended version of the Design Museum’s touring exhibition, Lesser Known Architecture, focusing on some of the UK’s hidden architectural gems.

Lesser Known Architecture is an ongoing photographic research project by Theo Simpson that seeks to document the forgotten architecture: extraordinary buildings, structures and ideas that helped define the landscape of their time, and the technology of the future. Opening on November 22, it is on display until March 20.

On the opening day, Theo will be giving a free talk and guided tour, from 1-4pm. On Monday, November 24, he will be giving free, one to one portfolio reviews with budding photographers. To book, email info@nationalcraftanddesign.org.uk or call 01529 308710.

Opening the same weekend will be Space Craft: Architecture Meets Making, a touring exhibition developed by the Crafts Council that explores the relationship between architecture and making featuring the work of 10 makers inspired by architecture and architects.

Work will include a piece from ceramicist Edmund de Waal, willow sculptures by Laura Ellen Bacon and a cityscape made of wood, inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
