Rubber soul

The Independent's architecture critic, Jay Merrick, has belatedly made it to Dungeness to see Simon Conder's black rubber-clad Beach House - given special mention in this year's AJ Small Projects Award. 'The only thing missing in the diffuse, marly spring sunlight, with the wind scuffing across the shingle, is Lear and the Fool, ' he observes a little cryptically, before concluding that Conder's house is 'a bizarre glitch in architectural form that causes sensory underload to flip, almost impossibly, into overload - an obscure object of desire'.
