The public is invited to climb, sit in, walk through (and occasionally queue for) a series of site-specific installations across the Victoria & Albert Museum. The 1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces Exhibition explores the ideas and possibilities embodied in small spaces.

Each space is unique and when inhabited engages a different range of senses and emotions. To find out more about the inspiration and thinking behind each design there is a temporary display in the Architecture Exhibition Space (Room 128a). It includes all the concept models submitted by the nineteen architects for the exhibition, seven of which were chosen and built. The display is near the permanent exhibits on architecture, from the V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership, in the adjoining Architecture Gallery (Room 128).

Entry to the installations and display in Room 128a is free. The exhibition runs until 30 August 2010.
