Five things to do today: 4 December

Floating islands - Capitol punishment - extending bookcase - Lawrence Speck - play to create

1

SEE these intiguing 'floating' island sculptures, populated by toy figures (pictured): 'isolated pieces of land that look like they were wrenched from the earth by some force of nature, are floating through nowhere.'

2

READ the Wall Street Journal's review of the new visitor centre below the Capitol in Washington that will host three million tourists a year: 'A banal exercise in modernistic, ersatz classicism'.

3

CHECK OUT this excellent extending bookcase from Rotterdam-based designer Reinier de Jong.

4

DISCOVER why Lawrence Speck believes 'the narrow, politicised ivory towers of yesterday have been replaced by architecture schools that value diversity of thought and practice'.

5

UNCOVER 'the powerful link between creativity and play' in this video from innovation and design firm IDEO.
