Freebie-hunters would have been disappointed by last Saturday's launch of a new project at lvaro Siza and Eduardo Souto de Moura's Serpentine Pavilion. The 'Sounding Architecture' event was lacking the de rigeur accoutrements - the canapés and booze to which Astragal is accustomed. However, this problem was made up for by the performance. This pioneering exploration of 'the non-visual awareness of space' is led by sound artist Kaffe Matthews and artist Lynn Cox, collaborating with a group of 18 deaf and blind participants.

All very odd but, perhaps surprisingly, worth a visit.
